Sponsorship Is key to advancing senior women… it gives them greater opportunities to excel through increased visibility, exposure and opportunities. It involves active support by someone with significant influence on decision-making processes or structures. A sponsor advocates for, protects and champions the woman’s career advancement.
The Sponsorship Programs
Our structured sponsorship programs identify and match high potential women with leaders who use their influence intentionally to help them advance into highly visible jobs or projects.
Our programs includes a combination of both:
- One-one sponsorship. We support sponsors with guidance and tools to assist them to be effective
- Confidential Leadership Circles. We meet sponsees regularly to share their learnings and build their leadership skills in the work environment. A wide range of development topics are presented to create stimulating and challenging content
