AIG’s assistant vice president Brandi Monique shares the mentor relationships that led her to her success at AIG. Monique defines mentorship as an organic connection — rather than a formal relationship — between a mentor and mentee. Monique says from her early days at AIG, she sought potential mentorship relationships which helped her grow through the company. She says mentors need not be as the same background of affinity as mentees, but simply need to demonstrate a vested interest in their growth.
