CareerSource Central Florida President and CEO Selected as Mentor for Bizwomen Mentoring Monday Event
Annual Event to Mentor over 10K Women Across America
Orlando, Fla. – On Monday, February 25 the Orlando Business Journal will be hosting their sixth annual Bizwomen Mentoring Monday event. Among 40 of Central Florida’s most influential women, Pamela Nabors, president and CEO of CareerSource Central Florida (CSCF) has been selected as a mentor-coach during this one-of-a-kind event. CSCF is the second largest workforce board in the state and during Nabors’ seven year tenure, she’s been instrumental in changing people’s lives, transforming businesses and creating more prosperity for the Central Florida community. Attending mentees will be provided a light continental breakfast and then given the opportunity to seek mentorship during this two-hour event. Registration will be open all the way up until the morning of Feb. 25.
“Mentors have played a huge role throughout my life, and especially in my professional development,” said Nabors. “I’ve been fortunate to have had smart, insightful, inspiring people in my corner, and it makes all the difference. I’m excited and honored to have been given the opportunity to help guide and encourage others just starting their journeys.”
This nationally participated “speed-mentoring” event brings distinguished women from all industries under one roof to provide mentoring to over 200 women per industry. More than 40 Business Journal markets from Albany all the way to Hawaii will be participating in creating a fast-paced, casual coaching atmosphere of learning. Attending mentees will be coached in various markets by moving from table to table for a brief, 8-minute group conversation with mentors of their choice – allowing for not only mentoring to occur, but organic networking to transpire.
Along with Nabors, some of the local mentors include: CSCF Board Member, Wendy Brandon of Central Florida Regional Hospital; Bridget Keefe of Downtown Orlando Partnership; Yolanda Londono of Tupperware Brands Corp.; Jennifer Maceo of Central Florida Urban League; and Crystal Sircy of the Orlando Economic Partnership. These prominent women hold expertise from an array of industries and are prepared to impart their diverse wealth of knowledge to attendees.
Those interested in attending the Bizwomen Mentoring Monday event have until the morning of Feb. 25 to register. The event will be at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress at 1 Grand Cypress Blvd. in Orlando from 7:30-9:30 a.m. For more information and to register for this event, visit the Orlando Business Journal website.
