Business Attorney Deana Labriola to Participate in Mentoring Monday

On February 12, some of our state's most inspiring and influential women will gather in Raleigh for a 'one-of-a-kind' networking event. It's called Mentoring Monday. This annual affair, sponsored by the Triangle Business Journal's Bizwomen (TBJ), is designed to bring professional women together by offering attendees a chance to sit down with the mentors of their choice. Ward and Smith business attorney Deana Labriola is one of more than 40 women who will be giving out career advice in one-on-one speed-coaching sessions.
