Bracewell & Giuliani and Dana Perino Host Minute Mentoring® in New York

May 10, 2012

HOUSTON — On May 16 at the New York office of Bracewell & Giuliani, LLP tomorrow’s female leaders will get a chance to learn from senior women executives in the financial services, media, energy, and consumer products industries, their top three tips for career success, during Minute Mentoring®, a unique, fast-paced mentoring event.

Now in its third year, Minute Mentoring® was developed by former White House Press Secretary Dana Perino, Bracewell & Giuliani Partner Dee Martin and Jamie Zuieback. The first of its kind, round robin-style forum allows accomplished female professionals to share their experiences with young up-and-coming counterparts in rapid-fire meetings.

The New York event will include senior women professionals and executives from across a range of industries.  Mentors  will be leaders from AIG Asset Management, Centerbridge Partners, Crown Publishing, Feminist Majority Foundation, Fuze, Fundamental Advisors, Halliburton, Millstein & Co., NBC Universal, NBC’s Today Show, and News Corp., among others.

“In today’s ever-demanding workplace, hard work and long hours are no longer enough to get ahead,” said Perino. “The women serving as Mentors have successfully carved out a path and are able to teach younger women invaluable leadership lessons. The Mentors can help them by championing their successes and providing insights about career development, work-life balance and management skills. Minute Mentoring® offers rising female stars in their field an unparalleled introduction to some of the industry’s best minds.”

At the event, Mentors will meet with small groups of three Mentees, who rotate to new Mentors every 10 minutes. After sharing experiences, practical advice, and best practices for career development and leadership goals, the event concludes with an opportunity for all participants to network.

“A recent LinkedIn survey of 1,000 women reported that 1 out of every 5 women said they had never had a mentor in the workplace,” said Martin. “Minute Mentoring® aims to bridge that gap and provide future women leaders the opportunity to learn firsthand from some of the leading female executives in their fields. Additionally, the program offers seasoned women executives the opportunity to share the knowledge gained over the course of their career to a targeted group of women excited to follow in their footsteps.”
