Women As Career Coaches is back!​

For the first time in three years, we are very excited to announce that HIEC will be hosting an in-person Women As Career Coaches event that will bring together our community of young people and adult mentors for an impactful, inspiring and uplifting evening.

Women as Career Coaches is an evening event that brings together young women from the community with adult mentors from all pathways. Over dinner, youth and mentors have the opportunity to engage in informal mentorship conversations, listen to a line-up of inspiring spotlight speakers, and participate in a panel discussion on career pathways.

Who can be a Career Coach at Women as Career Coaches?

Everyone has a story about their career path – even if that journey is still in progress. By joining us as a Career Coach, you’ll have the opportunity to share your experiences and advice with a group of young women who are contemplating their future. Whether you’ve been in the same job for many years, changed paths multiple times, or are in the middle of reinventing your career, your story can help the young people you meet at Women as Career Coaches begin thinking about their future.

Thank you to our Sponsors

 *Our first priority is that this is a free event for students. Although we are striving to make this an event that is widely accessible to the community, the rising costs of hosting an event make your contributions even more important. Please consider making a donation – without financial support, this event simply wouldn’t be possible. We can’t do it without you!*
Your support of Women as Career Coaches will help us continue our important mentorship work. Learn more about how you can get involved here.
