Christy Veach discusses September 24th Session with Dr. Jo Blondin, President of Clark State

On September 24th, The discussion, "What All Mentors and Mentees Should Know" led by Dr. Jo Blondin, President of Clark State spurred a wealth of encouragement for the women who attended. In a room full of women leaders from various industries, we pledged to keep the momentum going through a new mentorship program being led by Dr. Jo Blondin.

Christy Veach of the Lean In Circle, The Grid, located in Piketon, Ohio shared her thoughts about this past weekend:

"As a 41-year-old mother of three, I have often struggled to make a solid connection with other women in my profession.  Over the years I have been mostly surrounded by male peers and even found myself favoring male superiors.

As I watch my two daughters, ages 10 and 13, start to become young women, I feel a sense of urgency to be part of the change factor to help cultivate an environment where women not only support other women but truly value their ideas and promote each other as we should. 

I was overwhelmed by the energy that was present at the talk on mentorship, where I was able to connect with individuals through the small group discussions and take away ideas to share with our Lean In Circle, The Grid, here in Piketon, Ohio.  I look forward to seeing everyone again at the follow-up session!"
