Another exciting part of the event will be the opportunity to meet with mentors. The mentors are experienced HI professionals who can provide guidance for your personal and professional development. Our format will allow you to explore, ask questions, and address concerns in a supportive environment. You will also have an opportunity to grow your professional network.
