Speed Mentoring

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

On your mark, get set, get schooled. People behind AAJA's National Mentoring Program will help you see how mentoring can help you cut through the claptrap, seek solutions and get help from someone who has been down the road before you. Learn some strategies for dealing with work's little (and big) dramas. We'll explain the ground rules, give you sessions with several mentors and send you on your way with a new perspective on the ancient art of mentoring. Depending on who we have, you'll be a mentor or a mentee -- or both.
