Catalyst research has found that while mentoring is essential to leadership development, it is not enough, on its own, to help women advance. Our studies point to a more influential professional relationship: sponsorship.
Sponsorship can help combat three key barriers to women’s advancement: exclusion from informal networks, lack of role models, and gender stereotypes. It can result in a triple win, benefitting not just the protégé but also the sponsor and his or her organization.
Join our Catalyst Europe Live Q&A: Sponsorship 2.0 webinar for a conversation about sponsorship in action with two experts on this topic: Christiane Bisanzio, Group Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer and Head of Human Resources for the Northern, Central and Eastern European Region, AXA, and Eileen Taylor, Chief Executive Officer, DB UK Bank Ltd. In this live Q&A setting, Ms. Bisanzio and Ms. Taylor will have an unscripted dialogue about sponsorship and the impact it can have on careers.
All webinars are complimentary for Catalyst member organizations; there is a $300 USD fee for non-members. Please register with your corporate email address to ensure approval.
