    Diversity in the Workplace: Are Mentors Really Necessary for Success?

    2 PM EDT

    Mentors are a valuable, yet often underestimated tool that young, diverse lawyers need in their career development toolkit. Despite its importance, minority attorneys struggle to find good mentors and often lack meaningful opportunities to connect with influential lawyers within or outside of their organization, leading to increased attrition rates. This teleconference will explore the importance of mentors, the difference between mentorship and sponsorship, how to find mentors, and mentoring best practices.
