MADISON, WI January 22, 2018 – Wisconsin Women in Government (WWIG), a statewide, bipartisan, non-profit organization, will host an upcoming speed mentoring event for women in southeastern Wisconsin.
The event, to be held on Wednesday, March 7th at the Wisconsin Club in Milwaukee, will provide an opportunity for participants to strengthen their professional networking skills. Over the course of ten rounds, participants will be paired with each mentor for approximately 5 minutes to introduce themselves and discuss their professional goals and experiences. Participants are encouraged to bring business cards to facilitate additional follow up after the event.
“We are thrilled to bring this event to Milwaukee,” said Anne Sappenfield, WWIG President. “Our organization is committed to providing professional resources like this event for women in southeast Wisconsin who are interested in public service careers.”
This is one of many events hosted each year by WWIG, an organization dedicated to raising funds to support the education of women who enter public service as a career goal. WWIG’s Southeast Committee was recently established to bring more programming to the Milwaukee area. All proceeds from the event will go to WWIG’s scholarship programs.
The women’s networking event will run from 5:30 to 7:30pm. The speed mentoring session will begin at 5:50pm, followed by a reception at 6:50pm with light appetizers, one drink ticket and a cash bar. Tickets may be purchased for $20 each on the WWIG website, wiscwomeningovernment.org. Although anyone is invited to participate, space is limited and advanced registration is required.
