Posted By Breezy Lachance, Wednesday, May 15, 2019

In the spirit of Women’s History Month and WIB National’s 2018 theme of “Lift While You Climb”, the WIB Capital Region chapter hosted their annual Mentors, Advisors, and Peers Group (MAPs) kickoff event on March 26, 2018. 

The event started with refreshments and networking (featuring a highly interactive and fun “Networking Bingo”), followed by an engaging panel discussion on the benefits of peer mentoring. The panel featured women from all different careers levels, from early career to 20+ years of experience. Attendees were able to learn about each panelists’ experiences in participating in peer mentoring groups and how peer mentoring helped them to grow not only in their jobs, but in their personal lives. From the discussion it was clear that no matter what career stage you’re at, there are numerous ways you can benefit from peer mentorship! 

We’d like to extend our sincere thanks to the Drug Information Association (DIA) and Liz Strom of Creative Calm Solutions LLC for sponsoring this event.
