Event Summary

WIAM is a program designed to offer small group mentoring sessions in functional areas of interest to those in our community. The general format for the event is intended to be intimate with each session consisting of 10-20 attendees. Each functional area is led by a woman performing at a high level in that field. Each attendee will pick two sessions of interest to them, and each session is approximately 45 minutes long. The seven professional area panels are noted in the image above.
