Women & Equality Summit: Workplace Equality: The Role of Men in Gender Equality
Do you know the difference between a sponsor and a mentor? A sponsor is a person in a position of power that is willing to make a deep investment in you. Sponsors identify your potential, make an investment in your growth and actively advocate for your career. Research from CTI estimates that employees with sponsors are 23 percent more likely to move up in their careers than those without sponsors. In this session, you will hear from successful leaders —both women and men — that have risen to the C-suite rank and the sponsors that have helped them along the way. You will come away with actionable insight to be able to identify a sponsor, gain their trust and secure their endorsement to move your career forward.
