Open to Catalyst Members only – Catalyst invites you to a roundtable discussion and workshop on “Over Mentored but Under Sponsored? Relationships That Matter for Women’s Advancement”. This session will highlight the importance of mentors and sponsors in women’s career development and advancement.
Using research from Catalyst, the difference between mentoring and sponsorship will be discussed, with a special focus on what individuals and organizations can do to maximize the efforts of both of these key relationships for women’s success at work. Exchange ideas with other companies on what works (or doesn’t!) when it comes to mentoring and sponsorship programs for women’s advancement.
We encourage your organization to send up to three participants, at least one of whom has been a mentor/sponsor and at least one of whom has received mentoring/sponsoring.
