"Lessons Learned: Mentoring My Younger Self" - A Series

Silhouettes of Women with a network pattern on the background

Sponsored by Women of Hopkins NY!

Have you ever wished that you could travel back in time and share moments of wisdom and reflection with your younger self and others? Life experiences, personal development, and maturation can change our perspectives, and make past decisions look different through the lens of hindsight. It is never too late to learn from ourselves or others. Please join our panelists, Mary Ann Dickson, Susan Daimler and Jennifer Streaks, for a dynamic and candid conversation of personal journeys, practical insights, strategic tips, and bits of advice. 

It will also be an opportunity to build your network and connect with fellow Hopkins alumnae, friends and allies in New York.

* Lite fare and drinks will be provided!
