We will be hosting a “speed mentoring event” outdoors on the rooftop of the convention center, where attendance will be capped to 200 students per session. There will be tables, light food and drinks served. Mentors will sit at tables (with 8-10 students each), and will hold an informal discussion on a particular topic (see a preview of some of the current mentors and topics below).
This is for IN PERSON ATTENDANCE ONLY. A separate event will be created for virtual attendees. Please do not register for these events if you will not be in New Orleans.
You will get to meet with Senior Faculty and Industry Leaders to discuss topics of interest to students! You must register in advance to attend and attendance is capped. If the event is full, you can join a waitlist but you should select another event. This is a mentor event curated by our Special Activities Chairs and is meant for networking with Senior Advisors and Industry leaders.
Please log into your registration to select an event if you are interested.
