Cultivating a strong network of mentors and sponsors is a critical step for career development and advancement, especially for women, who often miss out. Mentors help to prepare us for our next role or career move by leading by example, providing guidance and making valuable introductions. Sponsors help to open doors, serve as advocates and give us projects or assignments to enhance our position and visibility. But how do you successfully secure the support of a mentor? In this session, you will discover how mentorship and sponsorship can help you to reach your next career goal and what you can do to get and stay connected with the people that can support and influence your success.

You will learn to:

  • Describe the role that mentorship and sponsorship plays in career advancement
  • Recognize where opportunities for mentorship and sponsorship lie
  • Become “mentor ready”
  • Create a mind map to establish your highest priorities and identify who can meet those needs
