Mentorship is the influence, guidance, or direction given by an individual with expertise to a less experienced individual.
According to an article featured on Chronus.com, "67% of women rate mentorship as 'highly important' in career advancement, while 63% report they’ve never had a mentor."
The article goes on to cite a study completed by the Wharton School of Business, which notes that mentorship program participants were promoted 5x more often than those who did not participate in the program.
Knowing the inextricable connection between #mentorship, #careeradvancement, and the desire to be mentored, why is there a gap in mentorship opportunities for #women?
Can we have some dialogue?
Have you had a #mentor in your #career? If so, how did you identify your mentor? What was the greatest benefit of your mentor-mentee relationship?
If you have not had a mentor in your career, why not? Do you believe mentorship could help you advance in your career?
If you had the opportunity to join a virtual mentorship circle with a small group of other like-minded professional women would you join?
Personally, I've had 3 mentors throughout my career. All very different, but all incredibly valuable. Each mentor shaved years off of my #personal and #professional #growth!
Is it time for you to find a mentor or give back and become a mentor?
What are you seeking in a mentor? What do you have to offer as a mentor?
