Event Details

Despite the progress women have been making in the corporate world, they are still not making it to the very top. Even now, they account for less than 16 percent of all corporate officers. Often they get stuck in middle and senior management positions. What’s keeping these hardworking, ambitious professional women under this last glass ceiling? Research has shown it is lack of role models and advocacy. Women who are qualified to lead simply don’t have the powerful backing necessary to inspire, propel, and protect them through the perilous straits of upper management.

While mentors and sponsors can help jump-start your career, finding one isn't easy. Looking back on your career, do you have a mentor or sponsor? If so, please share with us your experience. If not, you might be interested in hearing what Lin Gao has to share from her upcoming new book "Forward"《职得》:
  • What’s the difference between a mentor and a sponsor?
  • Why do the sponsors and the mentors want to help you?
  • How to find your mentors and sponsors?
  • Could your direct boss be your mentor?
