About the Event
Athena's Annual Oktoberfest | Presented by: The Aspiring Leaders Special Interest Group (ASIG)
This highly anticipated speed-networking style event features curated mentors and is designed to connect you with sought-after STEM professionals sharing their stories of success to help you grow, lead, and tackle any upcoming hurdle.
Research shows, companies with employees who have mentors, champions or sponsors in their career see a 72% higher retention rate on average, and 27% higher job satisfaction, Ms. magazine reports. Those numbers are no surprise—as employees with mentors are six times more likely to see opportunities for promotion, 27% more likely to be selected for stretch assignments and receive 25% higher pay on average.
Come prepared with your questions for our mentors about their blueprint for success, and be ready to drop your LinkedIn URL in the Zoom chat to connect with STEM leaders in a fun, action-packed program. RESERVE YOUR SEAT TODAY!
