Networking Event - Empowerment & Eggs

Trusted Mentors, Inc. will be holding their first annual Empowerment & Eggs professional networking breakfast on Thursday, April 28th, 2011 from 7:30-9:00 a.m. at Conseco Field House. 

Empowerment & Eggs will feature three speakers that many local business people and entrepreneurs will recognize; including: 

Michael (Mickey) Maurer, Chairman of the Board for the Indianapolis Business Journal Corporation; 
Ali Sales Roach, co-founder of Compendium Blogware; and Kemba Smith Pradia, nationally recognized and award winning speaker, and founder of the Kemba Smith Foundation.

The theme of Empowerment & Eggs is the power of mentoring in the lives of adults.  Over 70% of executive level business people say that they have had a mentor in their lives that has helped them achieve their goals. 

Trusted Mentors’ mission is to provide volunteer mentors to adults at-risk of homelessness, ex-offenders re-entering society, and young adults aging out of the foster care system.  In 2010, 86% of the adults in Trusted Mentor’s program remained house; while 81% of ex-offenders remained out of the prison system.  Trusted Mentors is the only organization in Indianapolis that provides mentors for at-risk adults. 

Businesses interested in sponsoring Empowerment & Eggs can do so at levels ranging from $500-$5,000.  Individual tickets can be purchased for $40.  All proceeds will go directly to Trusted Mentors to fulfill our mission of preventing homelessness through the power of mentoring.
