April 9, 2010,
GREENSBORO, N.C.-WithIt, the women's leadership development network for the home and furnishings industries, will sponsor a student mentoring day at High Point Market on Wednesday, April 21, and both WithIt members and non-members are invited to participate as mentors.
The event will take place from 8 to 11:30 a.m. at the Media Center. Afterwards, there will be a special presentation and lunch at 11:45 a.m. in the Natuzzi showroom, 130 West Commerce Ave.
"Securing talent is an important economic competition, and it's critical to draw people into real life, face-to-face experiences," said Stephanie Lowder, 2010 WithIt president. "Because WithIt exists to develop leaders, we know there's nothing more encouraging than telling your own story. We invite everyone to be a mentor/guide, tell students about your career and the joy you find within it, and give them access and insight into what others are doing at High Point Market."
Those who are interest in participating can contact Sara Lyke, executive director, WithIt, at email@example.com or 336-880-2188.
