We can make our organizations and programs more inclusive with a growth mindset and enhance relationships among staff, mentors and mentees.
Losing well trained employees costs significant time and money. Organizations that implement a mentoring culture have an easier time attracting and retaining strong talent, as potential and current employees feel optimistic about their chances to learn and grow. Strong mentorship programs consider and reflect an organization’s culture and goals and work to make sure mentor relationships are a two-way street.
Learn the strategies you need to understand, recognize and interrupt microaggressions, all in one place. Microaggressions happen every single day — and you may not even realize it. They can come in the form of a verbal insult, a nonverbal snub or a poorly thought-out joke.
