Advocate to Elevate: Growing the Next Generation of Leaders
Mentorship & Sponsorship: how to maximize both. Join ULI SF’s Women’s Leadership Initiative in a Lunch & Learn event exploring the topics of Mentorship and Sponsorship within the real estate industry. What’s the difference?
Whether the mentor relationship is organic or structured, members of underrepresented groups often need career advice presented hand-in-hand with opportunity and visibility. We’ll have a lively panel and group discussion on the merits and compatibility of both kinds of advocacy.
We’ll kick off the roundtable discussion with our two featured mentor/mentee pairs:
- Matt Field & Cascade Zak talking about sponsorship within the same company
- Mary Corley & Jessica Willis discussing structured, formal group mentorship and how to extend the relationship in a direct way.
Whether you’re a senior leader looking to learn everyday opportunities and techniques to mentor & sponsor or new in your career and seeking allies to set up their careers for success and mobility, you’re welcome to join! You’ll walk away with practical examples of successful pairings, and ideas to apply to your own goals—either as a mentor/sponsor or mentee/’protege’.
