Women In Technology International (WITI) Kansas City Speed Mentoring and Networking Event

November 14, 2019
The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City in co-sponsorship with University of Kansas Health Systems will host the Women In Technology International Kansas City first ever Speed Mentoring event for the Kansas City network. The purpose of this event is to create a reciprocal relationship in which the mentor and mentee work collaboratively to achieve the mentee’s goal through supporting, motivating, aligning, in short intervals of time.

About this event

The benefits achieved from attending include:

  • Interacting with a Variety of People - The short intervals allows participants to experience more interactions than they could in traditional mentoring relationship.

  • Assist with Mentor Matching - Allows the opportunity to go a step further than reading a profile when choosing a mentor. This provides real-time trial to the compatibility between potential participants. Which can translate to a higher probability of successful matches.

  • Inclusion of All Individuals - This allows all individuals, regardless of their long-term availability. People who already are participating in a formal mentoring relationship can still attend a speed event. It will help them broaden their understanding of the subjects that may not be in their mentor's area of expertise.

  • Provide Networking Opportunities - Great way for the mentee and mentor to network. Networking is an important aspect of any person's career growth. A relatively easy way for mentees and mentors to expand their networks.

Audience
