Time and time again leaders point to mentors in their lives as instrumental to their success. On September 22, WE San Franciscoheld a panel event featuring senior professional women on how having mentors has impacted their careers. In this intimate and engaging event, the panelists provided advice for those both looking for--and looking to become--mentors. They answered questions such as:
Why are mentors so important? How do you find a mentor? And how can you make asking someone to be your mentor not an awkward conversation?
The panel featured Mari Kawawa, Chief Financial Officer at Emotomy; Kristi Kuechler, Managing Director, Client Management and Product Specialist at Lattice Strategies; and Katharine Earhart, Principal at Alesco Advisors. Each provided helpful feedback and stories about their experiences on being mentors and mentoring others. What was especially great was that they all had different perspectives, and the experiences came across as extremely personal and applicable to the audience.
The event concluded with a reception and networking. WE San Francisco was glad to see you there!
