Women have the innate ability to nurture communication and cooperation, acting as leaders through the difficulties of gaining consensus and helping people do what they need to do better. From a talent management perspective, this leadership trait empowers women to maintain a more strategic focus for the good of the company. Since it is rare that anyone is born a leader, it is important to realize leadership must also be learned through deliberate actions of current leaders to empower our future leaders. As most experts agree, leadership skills are developed through the practice of mentoring.
Join us July 14th for the exciting kickoff event of the WITI Mentoring Program along with a fabulous panel discussion from Women in Leadership. Come and network with active members of the business community and to get advice on taking advantage of WITI’s formal mentoring program as a potential mentor or mentee in your company and network. Learn how to be a better boss, mentor, or coach to drive more success for those who look to you as a mentor. As a mentee, learn insightful tips and practices, set realistic goals, and develop a successful mentor and mentee relationship. All levels of professionals are encouraged to attend, from seasoned pros to novices in the business world.
"WITI has been developing forums designed to expand the number of opportunities for women and expand the number of women at the executive level of government, industry, and academia," said Carolyn Leighton, WITI Founder and Chairwoman. "The WITI Mentoring Program will deliver real value to individuals as well as companies who support leadership initiatives." The WITI Mentoring Program has been developed to provide women with a tangible benefit to receive mentoring or coaching from the WITI GEN program and the regional networks worldwide.
