We know the best relationships are mutually beneficial.  When people think of a mentor, they assume older and more experienced, but how can we flip that mindset and seek to learn from cross generations.  No generation likes to be stuck in their label. Gina Pell who coined the term Perennials says, “It’s a mind-set about being relevant, staying curious, reinvention, looking outside your own boundaries and living life fully sans generational" Join us to discuss the modern way of approaching mentorship by getting out of your silo and embracing what we can all learn from each other with different ages and experiences.

Capacity: 80
