The inspiration for this discussion was mentorship.  One out of five women in the United States does not have a mentor. Therefore, these women usually lack the necessary guidance they need to achieve their visions. The Making of Her Agenda opened with a networking hour and then transition into a greeting from Rhonesha Byng who also moderated the panel discussion. The panelists were Alia M. Jones-Harvey- Broadway Producer, Lora LeSage- VP of Digital, NBC Local Stations, Lauren Scala- Reporter, WNBC and New York Live, and Marvet Britto- President & CEO of the Britto Agency.

The event also featured a laptop raffle from Microsoft, treats baked by AssataSays, wine and giftbags courtesy of Miss Jessie’s.

The most important take-away from the panel discussion is to not only build a solid foundation for your career but to make sure you find a constant in your life where you are able to recharge. The lack of recharging makes women no matter their age, feel lost and unsettled with the life they have produced. All panelist agreed, it is important to understand what will be important to you in five years and shape your now towards those goals. Last but not least, never find yourself operating from a space of fear.

But don’t take our word for it. Check out the highlights and quotes from twitter:
