The Importance of Mentors & Sponsors

  • The Alex Hotel The Alex Hotel, Fenian Street. Dublin Ireland (map)

Recent research suggests that the notion that women need only to break through one glass ceiling on their career journey is no longer applicable. These same findings,taken from one thousand women between 18 and 60 years of age, also suggests that two thirds of respondents had or expect to encounter multiple barriers at different points along their career journey.

Career crossroads are key moments in the the working life of an aspiring and ambitious female manage. This is a time when being able to use a mentor as a sounding board,or a sponsor for backing, or a role model for inspiration is invaluable. But how do you and your organisation go about starting a mentoring panel? And, if you need a sponsor how do you approach someone?
