2018 Session | A Conversation on Sponsorship for Men and Women

Click Play below to listen to this session from the 2018 conference.

Women with leadership aspirations need advocacy from men and women in positions of power. In other words, they need a sponsor. A mentor can help define a dream; but a sponsor doesn’t stop until the dream has been realized. These mutually beneficial relationships are especially critical at transition points; a great sponsor can help remove obstacles, reveal opportunities, and make talent visible to key leaders. Whether you are looking to increase diversity and satisfaction at your company or to inspire meaning or momentum in your career, join this essential conversation about allyship, advocacy, and what it takes to find and become a sponsor.
