You'll hear about their career ups and downs, lessons learned about leadership, and the steps they've taken to create success in their professional lives in a way that works for them. They'll also discuss the role mentoring has played in supporting their success, and offer wisdom and lessons learned about how to navigate the unique challenges they've encountered as women leaders. The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A session that's open to audience participation.

This event is open to all women and allies. Velir is committed to creating and nurturing a community of women that is supportive of one another, and invests in supporting the growth of women in technology. Men are encouraged to attend, so they can learn about the intricacies of being strong coaches and mentors to women.

There will be food from Dig Inn, drinks, mingling, and networking before and after the panel discussion.

We hope you'll join us for this inspirational evening where you may find your own mentor or offer to share your career experience and insights with a new mentee!
