Lunch WISE Wednesday - Even Mentors Need Mentors!
This collaborative series exclusively for women is being co-hosted by the Richland Area Chamber of Commerce and the Small Business Development Center at Ashland University. Each month we'll have a time of powerful networking, a motivational "TED-type" talk as well as a chance to learn more about your community. We look forward to having you join us!
Being a mentor benefits both parties in many ways whether it be in business or your personal life. We will hear from a mentor and a mentee about their experience and best practices.
Meet our Guest Speakers:
