About this Event

This event is made possible by our generous sponsors: Our Title Sponsor for the event is Autism Pensacola, Our Pay-It-Forward Sponsor is Christina Powers Tax, Our food sponsor is IQ Eatery.

Thank you, sponsors! We are grateful!

Powerful Women of the Gulf Coast and the Pensacola Young Professionals are coming together to host this exciting event. We are taking the traditional tenants of face-to-face speed networking and pairing them with the mutual benefits of mentorship.


Powerful Women of the Gulf Coast (PWGC) live their mission to promote, advance, and improve women in business. The mission of the Pensacola Young Professionals (PYP) is to be a catalyst for positive change in the Pensacola Bay Area. We believe that our organizations share many common values, including the cornerstone idea that no one gets to where they're going alone. We are teaming up to bring the benefits of mentorship to members of both organizations and the community, at large.


This event is open to men and women of all career stages - Whether you are about to graduate college and are looking for resume tips; if you're at the midpoint of your career and looking to give back while still developing yourself; or maybe you're at an advanced career stage and you're ready to share some lessons learned - we want YOU to join us and experience the positive outcomes that we all gain from connecting with others.


  1. Register and complete our brief pre-event questionnaire. This will help us match you with the best people in the room - before you even arrive!
  2. Let your friends, colleagues, and contacts know you'll be there so they have a chance to join, too.
  3. On Tuesday 6/11, meet us at the Pensacola Athletic Center at 11:30am for introductions, silent auction bidding, and lunch (provided). From 12pm - 1pm, sit down and meet your matches for 5-minute rotations of connection conversations. Silent auction winners announced at 1:05pm.
  4. Leave the event with your fabulous silent auction items (must play to win), a complete list of who was in the room and how to follow up with them, and newly formed relationships that can expand your personal and professional horizons.

We hope you will leverage this unique opportunity to engage with like-minded people who are dedicated to building the best version of Pensacola, one relationship at a time.

Thank you again to our generous sponsors for bringing the gift of mentorship to our community through this event!
