Chicago Women Discuss the Importance of Mentors
As part of USJC’s Regional Women in Leadership (RWL) networking initiative, the Midwest region has organized a series of events called Womenomics in the City that Works. This was kicked off with a dinner in Chicago on May 25, themed ”Empowering Us: Masterminding Our Way to Success.” The participants met in small groups inspired by the concept of “Mastermind,” and discussed how to define and develop mentoring relationships. They also shared the perspectives of women mentors as well as women seeking mentors. At the end of the evening, each individual wrote a goal for herself. At subsequent Womenomics dinners, they will reflect upon their progress towards their goals.
