Mentoring the Next Generation


To kick off the Leading Women Defined conference, Mara Brock Akil, executive producer and creator of The Game, and Wendy Raquel Robinson, an actress on the show, hosted a program called "Speed Careering: Mentoring the Next Generation" for high-achieving teenage girls from various local organizations to provide inspiration and insight about the wealth of career opportunities available to them. Hosted in partnership with MENTOR/The National Mentoring Partnership, the goal of the session was to expose young girls to senior-level executives and show students what is possible for them if they work hard and follow through on their education.
