One-on-One Mentoring Partnership

High potential employees need to be challenged, engaged, and supported and each of their goals are unique. Ladders mentors are committed to supporting mentees in reaching and exceeding their goals. One common theme that comes from our programs is the need to “dream bigger.” Mentees in Ladders accelerate through their corporations faster than their peers who don’t have a mentor.

Business Education Webinars

Ladders mentees join Menttium 100 and Momentum mentees for monthly Business Education Webinars focused on topics critical to our mentees and proven to be pivotal to leadership success.

Peer Networking

In addition to a one on one partnership. Mentees also have access to connect with peers from other corporations for an added level of support and opportunity to learn from each other.
