The opportunity for transformation and growth starts with access to mentorship. Many studies have shown the benefits of having a mentor are endless, such as having increased confidence, improved communication skills, strengthened leadership skills, and a stronger sense of empowerment.
Join Latinas in Tech and Yelp this November 18th for a powerful conversation about the importance of mentorship and how having a mentor (formally or informally) can enhance your career in Tech.
Our panelists will share their unique stories to illustrate how their own mentorship and mentee experience has influenced their career growth and how mentorship has positively impacted Yelp and beyond.
