Event Information VIA bizjournals.com:

Join Pacific Business News on February 24th for this one-of-a-kind event that brings together women in a casual, fast-paced coaching atmosphere.

This event is one of 43 that is being held by Business Journals all over the country involving about 8,600 women who will be mentored and another 1,700 women mentors. That means nearly 10,000 of the best and brightest women from Albany to Honolulu are taking part in strengthening the community of strong business women in America.

The event will offer the opportunity to choose from 30 mentors who are the most influential women in the business community for one-on-one coaching sessions for seven minute conversations. This will allow the attendees to network with each other while they are waiting, which is just as important as the coaching sessions. We expect every attendee to have the opportunity to meet between five and seven mentors. The quick turnaround is organized chaos which will be fast, fun and fulfilling as everyone gets the chance to meet new people and gain new insights.
