  • Building a Culture of Mentorship

    Developing Mentors and Mentees is a natural part of an organization’s lifecycle. Yet when it becomes a “program,” it can become a stilted, forced process with little long term benefit to the participants. On the other hand, organic mentorship is a way to robustly develop lifelong mentors and focuses in building a community rather than programs. This webinar will detail how this culture can be built one person at a time, and the upgrade of value that it ultimately brings.
