Join the Charlotte Business Journal on April 4th for this one-of-a-kind event that brings together women in a casual, fast-paced coaching atmosphere.

This event is one of 43 that is being held by Business Journals all over the country involving about 8,600 women who will be mentored and another 1,700 women mentors. That means nearly 10,000 of the best and brightest women from Albany to Honolulu are taking part in strengthening the community of strong business women in America.

The event will offer the opportunity to choose from 50 mentors who are the most influential women in the business community for one-on-one coaching sessions for seven minute conversations. The attendees will stand in line and wait for a particular mentor or move to the next mentor available. This will allow the attendees to network with each other while they are waiting, which is just as important as the coaching sessions. We expect every attendee to have the opportunity to meet between one and seven mentors. The quick turnaround is organized chaos which will be fast, fun and fulfilling as everyone gets the chance to meet new people and gain new insights.

Immediately following the mentoring program, our Academic Partner, Northeastern University-Charlotte will be presenting a moderated panel discussion entitled: What Mentoring Means to Successful Charlotte Business Women from 10:00 – 10:45am. Stick around to hear how a panel of Charlotte business women attribute their success to mentoring and feel a great sense of responsibility to pay that experience forward.

The panel will be moderated by Dr. Cheryl Richards, CEO & Regional Dean of Northeastern University-Charlotte, and will feature accomplished women leaders in both business and in the community who have received the Charlotte Business Journal’s Top 25 Women in Business Award. In addition to personal anecdotes and actionable advice, there will be Q&A time with these accomplished and inspiring role models to top off your Mentoring Monday Morning.
