Mentoring and coaching for growth

by Yuan Wang

Meaningful mentoring relationships can be critical for women’s professional growth. However, studies show that women are 24% less likely to receive career advice from senior leaders. How and when should women and people of color intentionally seek out mentors vs coaches? How can someone find a mentor that’s a good match, ask for advice, and make a lasting relationship?

In this talk, Yuan will share practical guidance on how to cultivate meaningful mentoring relationships, and frameworks on how to build your own support network. She will also discuss the importance of leveraging ally skills when mentoring and coaching women and people of color.
