#CandidConversations Virtual Series: Why Sponsorship, Not Just Mentorship, Matters

Description

 

Anyone who makes it to the highest levels of leadership in any organization can identify a series of people along their career path who helped them achieve their success. More than mentors, sponsors are active advocates for our careers. They’re people who use their own political capital to create opportunity for us, providing air cover to take risks, and help us navigate the organization as we chart our course. Sponsorship matters for career success, but it doesn’t always happen naturally, especially for women and underrepresented minorities. Learn exactly what a sponsor is, how to get one, and why to be one.


This is event is part of our ongoing #CandidConversations, MACPA’s newest discussion series designed to create a safe and engaging space for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion conversations to take place. Hear from leading voices in the profession as they grapple with and confront issues of race and gender inequity while also detailing the effect those issues have on the CPA profession.

  • Differentiate between mentors and sponsors

Major Topics
