Southern California Chapter Hosts Speed Mentoring Event

WIT’s first Southern CA Evening of Speed Mentoring was a big hit! Thanks to our co-host, Spin Master, our wonderful volunteer mentors, and our highly engaged mentees for making this experience so rewarding for all.

Held at Spin Master’s LA offices, the event gave attendees a great learning opportunity as they met one-on-one with top industry professionals. A networking mixer followed, giving everyone a chance to mingle and share business cards while enjoying drinks & yummy appetizers.

We received great feedback from mentees and mentors alike, and plans are already underway for our next Speed Mentoring event. Stay tuned!
