Complimentary webinar with Lisa Fain and Lois Zachary

Bridging Differences for Better Mentoring

Join the Discussion with Lisa Fain and Lois Zachary

As the workplace has become more diverse, mentoring has become more challenging. Mentors and mentees may come from very different backgrounds and have limited understanding of each other’s cultures and outlooks. But mentoring remains the most powerful tool for creating meaningful relationships, furthering professional development, and increasing engagement and retention. Younger workers and emerging leaders in particular are demanding it.

Lisa Z. Fain and Lois J. Zachary, authors of Bridging Differences for Better Mentoring: Lean Forward, Learn, Leverage, will be building on ideas from their book during their hour long webinar event. Join us on February 27th at 2:30 pm (EST) as Lisa and Lois have an interactive discussion about improving the mentoring process within a diverse workplace.

During the webinar, attendees will gain insight into increasing their own self-awareness and preparing to embrace and leverage differences within mentoring relationships.
