Virtual 30-Minute Mentoring Sessions

Many in our community have unfortunately lost their jobs. The FWA wants you to know that we care and are here for you!

Back by popular demand:

Nancy Ancowitz (career coach, NYU adjunct faculty, and author of Self-Promotion for Introverts®) will present another virtual “30-Minute Mentoring” program to enable gainfully employed FWA members to help those who are in transition.

Nancy will kick off the event with new tips to help with your career advancement during these especially challenging times.

After Nancy’s kick-off, three consecutive 30-minute mentoring sessions will be held in online breakout rooms where a small group of “mentees” will join each volunteer “mentor.”
