Session 3 of the DEI Best Practice series.
All career levels
Best Practice Series: Mentorship, Sponsorship and the Role of the Mentee

About the event

Mentorship is a relationship between two people where an individual with more experience can pass along knowledge, skills and what they have learned through their career to a junior colleague within a certain industry. What does the mentee need to do in their preparedness to engage in the mentor/mentee relationship?

Sponsorship is a relationship between a protégé and an individual who has influence in the protégé’s career development and advancement.  

Come and join in this interactive session as we:

  • Learn about the dynamics of these critical roles and relationships in the professional and personal lives of individuals.  
  • Explore the core competencies required to be an effective mentor and sponsor to maximize the relationship with diverse talent/mentees.
  • Identify the expectations of mentees
  • Build a personalized model of competencies for your next mentorship, sponsorship, and mentee relationship

Guiding principles for this session:

  • Limit distractions
