She Shares is a women's mentoring program that pairs young women with seasoned professional women in the Sacramento area.  The program provides opportunities for participants to engage in professional development workshops, She Shares conversations and personalized one-on-one mentoring.  The overall goal is to ensure that more women are being supported in their careers and receive additional guidance to acheive their goals.

Our conversations (speaking engagement events) take place four times a year and include many high profile women leaders who share their stories, advice and insight with our audience.  Some of our past speakers include; Alice Huffman, Nancy Leiberman, Anne Gus Brown, Melanie Mason, Dee Dee Myers and Maria Shriver.  These events are not to be missed!  Please visit the link above for more information on the next conversation.  We hope that you will attend and continue to support these young women!
