Allies? Sponsors? What's Really Required to Advance Women in Leadership?

Women who want to advance into senior leadership need talent, experience and targeted training, of course. But relationships also matter – perhaps more than anything else. This session examines how relationships with people in power make the difference in women’s careers. Attendees will receive highlights from Male Allies for Women Leaders: Why They Matter, a joint report by Brandon Hall Group and Orange Grove Consulting.

Participants will learn:

  • The difference between allyship, sponsorship and mentorship
  • What professionals – both men and women -- think about male allyship and where you fall on the allyship continuum
  • How to create power relationships within your organization to help advance more women

12:00 p.m. - 12:05 p.m.
