Mentoring and Sponsoring in Inclusive OrganizationsSeptember 5, 2019
“A coach talks to you, a mentor talks with you, and a sponsor talks about you.”
Sponsors, mentors, and coaches can all make a difference in how individuals advance through organizations but there are key differences between each. Coaches provide guidance on development and often help with soft skills, such as active listening. Mentors help their mentees navigate their careers choices through formal or informal mentoring relationships. Sponsors use their influence or leadership status to advocate for the advancement of an individual.
Please join Catalyst, Keyera leaders and other Supporters for a discussion about how senior leaders or other people of power appropriately placed within an organization can help protégés obtain high-visibility projects or jobs. When women have sponsors, it can narrow the advancement gap between women and men. Join us in a lively discussion to increase our understanding of how these differences can assist when embarking on work relationships. Help us discuss the most critical elements of sponsorship programs and mentoring partnerships and how to make the most of your role on either side of the equation.
