The latest McKinsey & Co. Report cites that when more women sit at the decision-making tables, better decisions are made. Despite a record number of women graduating college and entering the workforce, statistics show the pipeline discrepancy between women who start careers and how many advance to senior positions. Mentorship is critical for women as they navigate their professional lives, where women in positions of power actively support, sponsor and guide, especially at pivotal points of decision.
What's more, we look to discuss distinct differences between mentor,
sponsor, and advocate -- and how to identify and build relationships with
each type of person as you advance your career.
Female mentorship, sponsorship and advocacy prove to be crucial ingredients for success as they provide the opportunity for rising women to broaden their experience & perspective, build social capital, develop strong business acumen, navigate organizational politics more strategically and gain the confidence to find their authentic voice.
