Empowerment Series: The Power of Mentorship
June 9, 2016 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pmFree
11:30 AM to 1:00 PM
We can easily agree that it takes a village to raise a child. What we might not see as easily, is that it also takes a village to build a career. While networking has value in building a wide variety of supports in our ‘career village’, mentoring has the power to deepen our understanding of ourselves, to build upon our strengths and develop strategies to overcome our weaknesses.
Mentoring has played a powerful role in both the personal and professional lives of Chrystal Pearson and Sue Godfrey. Join Sue and Chrystal for the WIBU Empowerment Series on June 9th to be inspired by the power of mentoring, celebrate the mentors in your life, and explore the importance of both having and being a mentor.
Lunch is graciously provided by Johnny Carino’s. Special thanks to Ivy Tech for providing us with a great facility.
New to WIBU? That’s ok, come join us and learn more about Women in Business Unlimited. All are welcome.
About our presenters:
Sue Godfrey has lived in Muncie longer than she’s lived anywhere. A 1997 graduate of Ball State University with a degree in History, Sue came to attend BSU and never left. She and her husband of 15 years, Stuart, live in the Minnetrista neighborhood in a home that puts the ‘OLD’ in ‘old home’. Committed to raising good adults, Sue’s children– Elliott, age 12, Maggie, age 11, and Henry, age 8– all make their own breakfasts.
Sue’s greatest passion is connecting people with each other and opportunities to use their strengths at work and while volunteering. Since 2014, she has been the Director of Advancement at Project Leadership, recruiting donors and volunteer mentors.
Muncie native Chrystal Pearson married her Muncie Central High School sweetheart, Andre. Chrystal and Andre have three sassy daughters, Michaela, age 13, Addisyn, age 9, and Emilyn, age 6, who take after their mother.
A Ball State University Social Work grad, Chrystal’s entire professional career has been devoted to relationship development and community engagement. Serving 9 years with Big Brothers, Big Sisters, she is committed to improving the lives of children in Delaware County and beyond. Chrystal is currently serving as the Development and Communications Coordinator for Academy of Model Aeronautics and is excited to deepen the connection of AMA with the community.
