JA Mentor Circle & Women in Leadership Lunch & Learn

The participants started the day with informative sessions with 19 Area Industry Leaders and Mentors from the Great Lakes Bay Area.  They finished the day with an inspiring presentation by Barbara Littles and a networking lunch with the Women in Leadership Great Lakes Bay members.


All the participants recieved "special glasses" so their eyes were wide open to the possibilities around them!

Participants comments share the mood of the day...


"I loved everything about today.  It was personal yet empowering.  I've realized how important it is to have a mentor.  Today I am going home with more confidence and a better outlook on life.  Thank you.  I'm proud to be a woman!"


"Today was an extremely great and wonderful experience.  I learned a lot and it opened my mind and eyes to all the opporutnities I have.  I broadened my horizons!"


"Thank you to both my mentors.  You really helped me to see a new point of view of life.  I am not going to run away from fear, and to stay prepared for what ever comes my way."


"I would love to attend an event like this again.  It was a great experience."


"Wonderful.  Would love to do it again!!"


"It was a great experience that I will never forget.  I'm so glad I came!"
