The Research Triangle Park

Mentor Up

RTP Headquarters | A.K.D. Conference Center Sep 29 8:00 am - Sep 29 10:30 am

We are the Women of RTP and we are working to create a culture in RTP where women help women. Where women are reaching back to help pull up the next generation of female leaders.

Have you ever needed career advancement advice? Tips for how to break into a new industry? Or maybe advice on how to balance work and home life as a working mom? Instead of 'lawyering up' we want you to 'mentor up'!

Join The Research Triangle Park for a morning of speed mentoring and the opportunity to get to know and learn from the women that make RTP what it is.

As an attendee you will have several 10 minute, timed, individual speed mentoring sessions with the mentors of your choice. You will have the opportunity to guide the conversation based on where you are in your career and what advice you are seeking.

Date: Friday, September 29
Time: 8:00am-10:30am
Location: RTP Headquarters, 12 Davis Drive, RTP, NC
