How will it work?

We’re recruiting some of Orange County’s most talented female and male executives to join us as mentors and can’t wait to introduce you to them. In addition to networking with other attendees, you’ll rotate as part of a small group through a variety of executive mentors. During each rotation, you’ll be able to ask your own questions while also learning from the questions of other attendees in your small group. This is a great opportunity to learn and grow in 2017!

Who can attend?

This event is available to men and women, both active members of AWT as well as non-members.
