Mentorship Training and Recruitment Event

  • Smarsh 851 Southwest 6th Avenue Suite 800 Portland, OR, 97204 United States (map)

Interested in joining our mentorship program? Then join us at the PDXWIT Mentorship Program Orientation hosted by Smarsh!

Hazel Valdez, Events and Mentorship Coordinator at PDXWIT, will provide an overview of the PDXWIT Mentorship Program and share the various ways folks can engage, from one-time mentor coaching encounters to long term mentor/mentee relationships. Tanya Webb, Head of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Puppet will also introduce the “On the Spot” Mentorship Tool for when you need quick advice on your resume or to practice your interviewing skills. We will then have breakout sessions for mentors and mentees so participants can get the most out of the program once they are matched.
