Avant’s Mentor Forum is a unique effort by team Avant to bring young professionals in touch with accomplished professionals. Young professionals often wish that they could have a “go to” person who could be a guiding hand in matters of personal and professional importance. As jobs turn to careers, professionals are faced with situations and opportunities on an ongoing basis where an objective input from an experienced and accomplished mentor is invaluable.
