The Kitty Congdon Mentoring Series is a program that is designed for women to learn how to mentor by first learning about themselves. The first three sessions of the 6-month series is led by Jennifer Marineau, author of Kick Some Glass. Through this series, Jennifer will lead women as they:


✓ Identify the barriers (organizational, cultural, and individual) that result in fewer women at senior levels of leadership in organizations
✓ Develop your own values-based statement of intention
✓ Understand the role that agency has in your career success.
✓ Define success your way
✓ Understand your network and the critical roles needed.
✓ Begin to map your network.

The remaining sessions will focus on effective critical conversation, mentor and mentee relationships, and networking.
