18 AviationforWomen J A N U A R Y / F E B R U A R Y 2 0 1 8 Minute Mentoring ® Thursday, March 22 • 9-10:30 a.m. (Pre-registration is required) Students and young professionals are hungry for advice from experienced women who want to offer guidance and suggestions by sharing their experiences. Minute Mentoring brings the two groups together in an efficient and effective program. This fast-paced session, similar to speed dating, matches professional leaders who want to share their life experiences with future female rising stars.

Hiring briefings allow companies to outline basic application procedures and discuss current available positions and requirements, as well as answer ques- tions from attendees. Briefings will last 30-45 minutes, require a conference badge, and are open seating. The following companies have confirmed 2018 par- ticipation. Check the website for additional participants.
