Last month, 20 people attended our Guru Guidance Spring Mentoring Event, which took place on the evening of May 24th at FORM Architects’ recently renovated space in Rosslyn. At the beginning of the event, Koren Stauffer, our generous host and FORM Marketing Director, took us on a tour of the space, pointing out thoughtful design elements and applied WELL Building Standards.

The roundtable portion of the event consisted of attendees breaking into groups of four, with equal parts mentors and mentees, and discussing topics ranging from networking and personal branding to having difficult conversations in the workplace. After the teams finished discussing the topics, the entire group got back together for an open discussion of the highlights of those conversations.

Through these engaging topics, team members were able to ask questions and share advice based on personal experiences. Both mentors and mentees communicated valuable opinions and created new relationships beyond this evening. We look forward to the next thought-provoking Career Advancement event to provide our members with expert advice!
