FEB Mentoring Program

                          FEB Mentoring Program Information

 

Your Greater DFW Federal Executive Board Mentoring Program is here! As we know, mentoring is a well-established secret to professional success. Benjamin Franklin once said “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” This simple yet profound quote embodies the spirit of our FEB Mentoring program.

We have listened to your feedback and  will be having dynamic speakers and interactive learning sessions this year. As we begin, the program will be largely virtual, with the hope of having in-person gatherings in the spring.

We hope you will both grow from and enjoy this experience.
