February 24, 2021: 10:00am to 11:00am (PST)
Are you prepared to work with a mentor or mentee NOT like you?
Mentoring remains one of the most powerful tools for inclusion. Mentors and mentees may come from very different backgrounds and have limited understanding of each other's cultures and outlooks. But mentoring offers a way to overcome these hurdles creating meaningful relationships, furthering professional development, and increasing engagement and retention. Younger workers and emerging leaders, in particular, are demanding it.
Please join us for an interactive fireside chat with Bridging Differences for Better Mentoring co-author Lisa Z. Fain. Lisa will share her tips on how mentors and mentees can make authentic connections and how you can foster inclusive relationships in the workplace. You will learn how you can implement the Lean Forward, Learn and Leverage framework from the book. Our fireside discussion will be followed by Q&A.
