The first 25 attendees will receive a to-go lunch.
In celebration of Black History Month, “Each One, Teach One” will feature Riche Holmes Grant ‘99, Entrepreneur in Residence, and Lauren Brown ‘22, Lead Peer Entrepreneur in Residence at the Nelson Center for Entrepreneurship, two Black women entrepreneurs who have built a strong mentor-mentee relationship fostered by initiatives at Brown. Following a candid discussion, attendees will leave with best practices for how to find a mentor, what not to do once you have one, and how to cultivate the success of the relationship, both at Brown and beyond.Register Now
