Mentors are Important, So Why Don’t We All Have Them?
As Chief Diversity Officer of one of America’s Fortune 50 companies, Dr. Lisa Wicker understands the importance of mentoring. Moreover, she believes that mentoring and sponsoring are key tools for retaining talent and advancing diversity. Research shows that mentorship and sponsorship programs enhance an organization’s ability to grow while fostering more inclusive teams. Mentorship is valuable and critical no matter your career choice. Every great leader at one point has someone they can trust, talk to, has “lived it,” and can provide guidance. Mentors are important, so why don’t we all have them? Is it the time it takes to develop the program or is it not a priority for talent development? If retaining talent and promoting diversity in the workforce is a goal for your organization, it’s important to help people of all identities and backgrounds feel supported, valued, and engaged through an intentional mentorship and sponsorship program. Dr. Wicker believes mentoring is an integral part of the Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI) framework. In this presentation, learn how mentorship and sponsorship programs can help attract, retain, and advance your employees, particularly your people of color.
Level-Up: Success Is About How You Get There Too!
From the disparate impacts of the COVID-19 crisis, women’s participation in the labor force has dropped to its lowest level in over 3 decades, and many organizations are struggling to retain and regain the women that have been disproportionately leaving the workforce. It is imperative that DEI endeavors include an intersectional focus on women, allowing the fight for gender equality to become inclusive. In this highly engaging presentation, Dr. Wicker will address the challenges women face when at the crossroads of their career. What does it mean to be successful? For today’s high-achieving women, success is more than breaking barriers and achieving their professional goals. Success is about how they get there, too. Research shows that as high-achieving women approach their careers and their lives, they’re factoring in 5 key themes into their career decisions and leadership styles. Collectively, the themes reveal deeper, more complex images of successful women and offer insight for women who are navigating their leadership journey.
