The Women's Foundation

Director of Pipeline Initiatives

It was wonderful to have Sam and Teresa join us for a virtual session with our reverse mentoring group.

We tackled the topic of Quality Conversations and while it can be more challenging to engage an audience during a virtual session, Sam and Teresa showed that creativity, innovation and fantastic energy can bring a session to life.

Thank you for an interactive evening that left us with much food for thought.
