FREE & open to all! We believe that great things don’t happen in a vacuum, and we encourage everyone to venture out to network once a month at Chance Meetings. This is an informative, casual, fun networking event that takes place the first Monday of every month from 5 – 7pm at The Rose (50 W Broadway Ave in Jackson). Have an idea? Have a question? Experience to share? Looking for like-minded people? We average 65 – 85 attendees, with new faces in the audience each month. Content ranges from panel discussions to speed networking. Everyone is welcome. Show up, bring ideas, ask questions!
Theme: The Importance of Mentoring
“The delicate balance of mentoring someone is not creating them in your own image, but giving them the opportunity to create themselves.” -Steven Spielberg
Our TEAMS mentoring program is set to launch at the end of February with our first Mentor training (Learn more at https://www.siliconcouloir.com/teams). Mentoring is on our minds and the March 5th Chance Meetings is an ideal time to discuss the importance and value of mentoring.
We’ve all heard about the immense benefits of a good mentor-mentee partnership. Many potential mentors and mentees have questions about how to build a productive and trusting mentor-mentee relationship. What are the responsibilities of being an effective mentor or mentee? What are the challenges of mentoring or being mentored? What local avenues exist for forming a mentoring relationship?
Join us at The Rose on March 5th at Chance Meetings for in depth conversation exploring these questions and more with experienced local mentors/mentees who have navigated building and participating in successful mentoring relationships.
