Unlock Potential Through Mentoring: Retain and Develop Your Diverse Talent
View a recording here

 

DESCRIPTION

We will see and hear an abundance of statistics at the 2018 Forum on Workplace Inclusion about how bottom-line business results are positively impacted by diversity in senior leadership ranks, yet how much progress still must be made. So, what is one practical step you can take immediately after the conference to make forward progress in your organization?

 

According to a Harvard Business Review article published in July 2016, “Mentoring programs make companies’ managerial echelons significantly more diverse: On average, they boost the representation of black, Hispanic and Asian-American women, and Hispanic and Asian-American men, by nine to 24 percent.”

 

You can begin to move the dial quickly in your organization, or even make an impact on your own career, with formal mentoring. In this powerful and practical session, Menttium, the mentoring experts, will provide two key learning opportunities with immediate takeaways for the participants: first, a panel discussion featuring a D&I leader, mentor, and mentee; and second, an overview of critical components to run a successful, formal mentoring program.

 

The session will address firsthand how mentoring enables D&I strategy, and both the personal and professional impacts of participating in a formal mentoring program. Additionally, the second part will include an interactive exercise on powerful questions, an important pillar to the mentoring relationship.

 

Learning Outcomes:

Learn how formal mentoring programs can enable D&I and talent strategies within your organizations.
Understand the critical components for a successful mentoring program, with example deliverables to take away and apply immediately.
Enhance effectiveness in a key leadership skill—asking powerful questions—by engaging in interactive exercises.

Developing Leaders in your Succession Pipeline

 

How do you help leaders escalate their leadership value? How can you provide future leaders with a “safe” place to ask tough questions and surface challenges? How do you unlock the full potential of your key talent to prepare for their next role? What does it take to enable leaders to lead authentically? Join Menttium, the mentoring experts, for a dynamic and interactive session on the power and value of mentoring in preparing leaders for the future. Learn about the key elements of a structured, formal mentoring program and how you could leverage mentoring within your organization to enhance a culture of development and inclusion that focuses on the whole person.

 

We believe the power of mentoring is often a result of the “point of difference” and matching a mentor/mentee with different experiences, viewpoints, and backgrounds to see the world through different lenses. We believe the right mentor can accelerate learning, increase confidence, broaden perspectives and help key talent realize their true potential. Hear different perspectives from Menttium stakeholders through a panel discussion on both the personal and organizational impacts of successful mentoring partnerships in developing leaders and driving high performance.

 

HRMAC CHRO Roundtables are forums exclusively for senior HR executives (and senior HR executives in transition) to gather and discuss hot topics and critical issues. These informative, educational sessions provide participants with a local peer network to share leading-edge information and benchmark against best practices in a neutral setting. Held 5 times annually, the Roundtables are designed as an opportunity for CHRO-level executives from HRMAC member companies to enjoy highly interactive forums on a strategic topic of interest.
