103 - Optimizing STEM Talent Through Mentoring and Sponsorship

Julie Kantor, President & CEO, Twomentor
May 31, 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm  •  Cascade

A mentor speaks to you, guides you, advises you. A sponsor speaks about you and champions you behind closed doors. A sponsor might also be the one to say YES! and make the hiring call. To see more STEM Diversity, let's explore the business case for mentoring and strategies that your company can employ. Did you know - in one study by Wharton - mentors were promoted 6x more and mentees 5x more?! Million Women Mentors is a movement that has met its time, and we are here to discuss best practices and internal strategies.

Note: Mini versions of this session will be held as Coaching Circles on Monday and Tuesday. Details will be in the onsite program guide addenda.
