MENTORS THAT EMPOWER
As a mentor with Avanti Women, I found the process easy to follow and more importantly, appreciated the opportunity to give back. This resource is important for women to feel safe when transitioning while seeking career advice. Thank you for allowing me to share my wisdom and impact another women’s career.
I found my dream job and learned how to break down barriers and sell my skills. The professionalism and advice that I received through the mentoring program was priceless. It was worth every penny!

The Avanti Women Program was exactly what I needed when I finished College and began searching for my entry job into HR. My Mentor gave me the insights and confidence to be direct and professional and provided the resources to move forward in a positive direction.

Dina Barazza is one of the strongest women I know. I had the pleasure to work with Dina as a Regional Ambassador for Avanti Women, an organization dedicated to move women forward through networking, learning and mentoring. As a recent graduate, Dina has given me opportunity and experience within the HR industry.
