Power Of Mentorship: Get Unstuck & Accelerate Career Growth

Monday, March 8, 2021 (12:00 PM - 1:00 PM) (PST)


A panel of mentors and mentees will share their mentorship stories and offer tips on how to get the most out of a mentorship program at this International Women's Day Special from 12 - 1pm PT.

It can be challenging to get the most out of mentorship, simply due to logistics -scheduling, tech issues and lack of agenda setting. At Locelle, we believe we can all benefit from mentorship when done right. We are committed to empowering women to grow and advance in their careers. And we believe mentorship is a powerful way to do just that. That's why we want to talk about it!

Tell me about this event.

On International Women's Day, March 8 from 12 - 1 pm PT, join us for The Power of Mentorship: Get Unstuck & Accelerate Career Growth. This virtual event will feature a panel of women who will share their mentorship journeys, the struggles they've faced with previous mentorship programs, and how mentorship helped them take their career to the next level. Panelists will reveal ways in which having a dedicated team of mentors can help women explore their own resilience, grow professionally and take steps to get ahead.
