On Wednesday, Digital Risk lady leaders from across all offices came together for a luncheon full of relationship building, mentoring and good old girl power!
This occasion marked the company’s second annual businesswomen event. The luncheon was developed to unite Digital Risk mentors with aspiring leaders, or mentees, to support both Mentees and Mentors in achieving their individual goals. Through the act of bringing Digital Risk women leaders from all parts of the company together, the program provided an opportunity for attendees to connect with one another and learn each other’s perspectives on a variety of topics faced by today’s female leaders, including career mapping and progression, networking and relationship building, leadership skills, keys to success in our industry and work-life balance.
During the event, attendees across all offices enjoyed a keynote speech from SVP Administration Operations Dena Jalbert. Event creators and hosts Employer Branding Supervisor Bridget Brennan and Human Resource Supervisor Amy Huff then introduced event mentors and kicked off the mentoring sessions. Jacksonville, Boca Raton and Denver attendees participated in a one-on-one 30-minute mentoring session. Concurrently, Orlando office attendees participated in speed mentoring sessions of organized chaos, as mentees moved from table to table to sit with mentors for 10-minute discussion sessions.
“I was thrilled to participate in the Mentoring Luncheon and always enjoy the moments when I can stop and reflect on all that I, as well as my peers, have accomplished throughout our careers,” said Vice President, Project Management Office Kim Lanham. “Hearing others stories continues to inspire me to be more than I think I can be.” Mentors were selected for their exemplary leadership roles, as either the company’s nominees for Orlando Business Journal’s Women Who Mean business or as program mentors in the P4 Mentor Program.

“I really appreciated the opportunity to glean from the experience and successes of our women leaders during the mentoring sessions,” said Manager, Client Services and event mentee Kelly Peyton. “The keynote speaker, Dena Jalbert, exemplifies how Digital Risk creates an environment where women appreciate and support each other.”
The Women Who Mean Business Mentoring Luncheon is a perfect example of how Digital Risk shows that people are its most valuable asset, and how the company invests in the continuous development of team members.
