Description

Want to learn how to network like a pro?

The Mumtaza Network is proud to announce our first-panel event: NETWORKING 101 - How To Build Your Network, Find Mentors, and more.

We all know that we need to network and that mentors are important. But what's the best way to go about it without feeling like a phoney?

At our NETWORKING 101 Panel, we'll hear from women at all stages of the networking cycle. From those with years of high-level experience who are at the top of their game having built and managed huge companies, to those with tips and tricks at the early stage of their careers. We'll talk all things mentorships, how to work a room full of people that you don't know, and how to build genuine relationships to expand your community of supporters and advocates.

Drinks + bites included.

~ The intention of this event is to encourage more women from diverse backgrounds to attend and take part, so that we can see more WOC in positions of power and influence in the near future, however, all are welcome to attend! ~
