The Power of Mentoring Happens in Pittsburgh April 18th

Pittsburgh Professional Women + our friends at COhatch Southside Works announce Women You Should Meet: The Power of Mentoring. This is an elevated networking experience for women in Pittsburgh.

Join us to mix, mingle, enjoy wine and light refreshments, enjoy a clever conversation with Colleen Fedor, Executive Director at The Mentoring Partnership, followed by a structured networking exercise. The topic of the evening is mentoring. Why we need it, why women avoid it and how it can impact and transform lives right here in our hometown.

I can't wait to introduce you to a very special guest Colleen Fedor, Executive Director at The Mentoring Partnership of SW PA. Colleen and her team oversee nearly 500 mentoring programs in our region. She came up with the genius idea to educate each and every school crossing guard in the city of Pittsburgh on how to mentor young children. WHAT!! I cannot wait for you to meet this woman and hear the brilliant projects her organization is working on. We'll be spotlighting a special service for local youth, PACS (Pittsburgh Area Community Schools) and the important mentoring work happening in the region, so come to learn all about it.
