#WorkTrends Preview: Mentoring: Women Elevating Women

Mentorship, whether it occurs in or out of the workplace, has numerous personal benefits, especially for women.

Our guest, Valerie Martinelli, previously of the Center for Economic & Policy Development, Inc., will be discussing the pros of mentorship and how women in the workplace can develop a support system for elevating the cause of women in the workplace. Ms. Martinelli will also discuss the widespread benefits of mentoring programs and how these are important programs for employers to institute into their culture. She will discuss her experience and how utilizing mentorship, sponsorship, and coaching can help us learn to turn our weaknesses into strengths and how owning our careers is critical to success.

Join guest Valerie Martinelli and host Meghan M. Biro on Wednesday, January 11, 2017 at 1pm EST when they discuss this important and timely topic.
