About the Event:

Athena's Annual Oktoberfest MentorFest goes virtual for 2020! This highly anticipated speed-networking style event features curated mentors and is designed to connect you with sought-after STEM professionals sharing their stories of success to help you grow, lead, and tackle any upcoming hurdle. ​

Research shows, companies with employees who have mentors, champions or sponsors in their career see a 72% higher retention rate on average, and 27% higher job satisfaction, Ms. magazine reports. Those numbers are no surprise—as employees with mentors are six times more likely to see opportunities for promotion, 27% more likely to be selected for stretch assignments and receive 25% higher pay on average.
