NextGen Virtual Coffee Chat: How Your Career Thrives by Having Mentors & Sponsors

The WiS NextGen Committee continues its series of Virtual Coffee Chats in a casual format to encourage conversations and connections.

May’s discussion, hosted by Nathan Herbert, Global Structured Finance Attorney at Ford, and Angela Ulum, Partner at Mayer Brown, will explore the differences between mentors and sponsors and discuss:

  • The unique value proposition of each of these types of relationships
  • How to identify and cultivate these relationships
  • Personal stories of successful relationships – and lessons learned

Attendees are encouraged to review this TedTalk with Carla Harris (the transcript of the discussion is also available via this link) and this piece from the Center for Creative Leadership that discuss the differences between these key types of professional relationships.
