Having strong personal and professional networks and mentors is important to reaching our goals.  They help us to thrive in our personal and professional lives by reducing feelings of isolation, increasing our feelings of support, and giving us access to a larger community.  Join us for a workshop that dives into the how of creating a strategic network and finding mentor relationships through exercises and interaction with others in the room.
