Mentorship sessions

Mentorship tables are an opportunity for mentors to share knowledge and experience with attendees in an intimate setting. Multiple small tables will be set up, with a mentor at each one.

Attendees can join these tables to talk to the mentors in small groups of 5 - 10 people. All our mentors have chosen topics to be a jumping-off point for further discussion with attendees.

We have allocated 1.5 hours for the mentorship sessions. During this time, attendees will have the chance to visit three tables of their choice, with 30 minute slots for each conversation.
