MASON CITY, Iowa – Everybody either needs a role model or can be a mentor themselves.

The North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC) held a speed mentoring event Thursday night to connect female students with female leaders from the community.

It gave them the opportunity to specifically ask questions about how to develop their future careers.

“Now Mentors is a group that we’re just trying to start so this is our first event and our goals are really two-fold,” said co-founder Kristy Sagdalen King. “One is to create a support system for existing women executives and also provide mentorship for future female leaders.”

This particular event was open to only the NIACC Women in Leadership and Learning organization, but Kristy says it is possible it will become more open in the future.
