WLN LA Hosts Mentoring Mixer

June 8, 2016


The Los Angeles chapter of the Women’s Leadership Network (WLN) wrapped up their 2015 year-long Mentorship Circle program with a Mentoring Mixer on May 24th. This was an opportunity for participants to meet mentors and mentees from other circles and to recruit mentees for the 2016 circles. The evening included a panel discussion made of up mentors and mentees, a clothing drive for Dress For Success, and a recruitment plug for the next Mentorship Circle session. The evening began with an introduction to WLN LA Chapter and closed with networking amongst agency peers. 55 women from across the Los Angeles IPG agency network attended.
