Welcome to Young Textile Professionals’ “Texpert Connections”. This series features industry veterans who want to share their expertise and experience with our young professionals. This is a way to evolve our networking and connect YPs with mentors from all areas of the industry. We wanted to also give YPs the power and flexibility to work with a mentor on their schedules. Here you can read each mentor’s profile, get a sense of which mentor would be a great fit, and contact them directly. All have years of experience and great Texpert advice! We will also help to facilitate mentor/mentee relationships through social media and virtual events throughout the year.
Contact the Katies, email@example.com, for more information on mentors, upcoming events and getting connected!
