#GHC19: Mentoring Circles vs. Speed Mentoring

Looking for mentors to help you further your career? You’re in luck! At GHC, we offer two unique sessions: Mentoring Circles and Speed Mentoring. Learn more about them and which one best suits your needs.

Mentoring Circles

Wednesday, October 2, 11:30 a.m.—12:40 p.m.,  1—2:15 p.m. (repeat)

This interactive mentoring session is a great opportunity for you to receive tips on job searching, interviews, and furthering your career. Taking place in a large room with about 50 tables, each table is hosted by a mentor focusing on a particular topic. Attendees choose a topic, sit at the corresponding table, and chat with a mentor for 20 minutes. Every 20 minutes, attendees switch tables and chat with another mentor on a different topic.

The Mentoring Circles session:

  • has table topics which are pre-determined by the mentors.
  • involves a 9:1 or 8:2 mentee/mentor ratio.

Speed Mentoring

Wednesday, October 2, 3—5:30 p.m.

The Speed Mentoring session, organized by the Anita|Bees committee, matches attendees with mentors from several disciplines in both industry and academia for fast-paced discussions of the attendees’ choosing. Attendees get an opportunity to connect with a new mentor every 20 minutes during the 2-hour session. Bring your resume for mentors to review during 1:1 lightning rounds.

The Speed Mentoring session:

  • allows mentees to drive the conversation and ask questions on a topic of their choice.
  • involves a 3:1 or 1:1 mentee/mentor ratio.

Roe v. Wade Has Been Overturned. You Have Every Right to Be Upset. Here’s how to take action

We at AnitaB.org, are disheartened and dismayed by the United States Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, a landmark ruling that enabled the right of an abortion to people around the nation. AnitaB.org brings together allies and champions across every sector to advance intersectional gender equity in technology. The technologists we support are also people impacted by targeted oppressive and unjust laws including laws that restrict reproductive rights. Not only do we empower technologists through our year-long programming but, we also advocate for better systemic solutions for the workforce and for their humanity. 

In response to the Supreme Court ruling, we are joining to elevate the calls to action of our social justice colleagues and community partners. 

If you feel called to do something today or in the next coming days, here are some action steps:  

  • Support and donate to Repro Legal Defense Fund, which is a national organization that covers bail and funds strong defense for people who are investigated, arrested, or prosecuted for abortion. Because no one should be behind bars for ending their pregnancy or helping someone else do so.
  • Support and donate to Plan C, an educational resource for learning about how people in the US access abortion pills.
  • Support and donate to your local Planned Parenthood, independent abortion clinics, and abortion funds.
  • Go to the streets and join a protest near you. Most protests are happening today at 5 PM at the federal courthouses or state capitols.

AnitaB.org is also launching a political advocacy series, Power to the People, with our first event on July 20th. The first event of this series, Power to People: Abortion Rights and Digital Privacy, will elevate the voices of abortion advocates and the risks emerging with digital rights and privacy. This event will empower you to take additional action regarding abortion rights and data privacy. Stay tuned for more information about this upcoming event.
