Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 07, 2016
More than 100 women from 41 companies graduated from the 2015-2016 Pathbuilders Percepta® program. Percepta is a six-month cross-company mentoring program for women with proven track records of professional success who have taken their development to a new level through an integrated and proven methodology that combines mentoring, interactive workshops and peer networking. These Percepta alumnae are ready to take on additional challenges and manage more significant key initiatives, projects and teams within their companies.
The 2015-2016 class graduation took place on March 1, 2016 at the Hyatt Atlanta Perimeter at Villa Christina. Women who participated in the program covered a core program curriculum including developing a corporate image and persona, mapping career paths, identifying skill gaps, improving communication skills, building credibility and influence and understanding the unwritten rules that guide an organization.
Cheri Husney, Executive Director of KPMG LLP, presented an award to her mentees for the 2015-2016 Outstanding Mentee group. The women she mentored were: Phoebe Himmel, Holder Construction Company; Christina Seabrook, Hire Dynamics; and Lauren Thomas, Cardinal Web Solutions.
“My mentee group was engaged and committed from the very beginning which made it a joy to mentor,” said Husney. “I’ve enjoyed watching these talented women rise to meet workplace challenges and take on more responsibility in their roles.”
Other mentees recognized during the graduation ceremony included: Joanne Carswell, Cox Automotive; Uldeen Lee, Rollins, Inc.; and Forsetta McCord, Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta.

Participants from companies such as Turner Broadcasting System, Cox Communications, Holder Construction Company, Verizon Wireless, Solvay NA, Kimberly-Clark Corporation, and Junior Achievement of Georgia have shared professional successes, and both mentees and their managers highly recommend Percepta as evidenced through formal surveys at the conclusion of each program class.
