WIB-Southern California: MAPS Mentoring Circles Launch

May 12, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The program is carefully designed to respect the busy schedules of all participants. After the launch of the program, the time commitment is three hours per month over a six-month timeline. Currently, the meetings will be virtual. You must be a WIB member to participate.

The event will be hosted by:

Veronique Baron, WIB-Southern California MAPS Co-Vice Chair, Mentoring Circles
Lamia Merabet, WIB-Southern California Committee Associate, MAPS and Communications

Lamia and Veronique will introduce themselves and discuss their roles, the role of mentors, and what is expected of all mentees. Then, each circle will go to their own break out room for individual introductions to their specific group. Participants will then talk briefly about what they expect to accomplish in their six months within the circles.
