Call for Submissions: Mentor Stories & Photos (Due 3.5.18)

What is the most significant mentor-mentee relationship in your life and how did it impact you? What difference did a mentor make in your life at a critical time? What is a mentor? Why are mentors particularly important for women?  Are mentors important in areas other than professionally? Who makes the best mentor? What was the most important thing you learned from mentoring or being mentored?

As part of our initiative to celebrate mentorship at the 2018 UWHEN Leadership Conference, we want to hear your story! 

Help us recognize your mentor and celebrate mentorship by responding to any of the questions above in 100-400 words and including a photo of you and your mentor (or mentee!) or a meaningful mentoring event.
