Webinar Description:

The service of mentorship benefits the mentor, the mentee and the organization as a whole. It is an opportunity to lead and learn, support and empower, testify to successes and honor the opportunity of change. Mentorship improves job satisfaction, enhances valuable skills, decreases staff turnover, increases organizational efficiency and enriches organizational culture.  A meaningful mentor-mentee relationship can bridge gaps and facilitate understanding in organizations that struggle for inclusivity and progress. Presenters will discuss mentorship for individuals who work to end domestic and sexual violence and stalking.

After the webinar, participants will be better able to:

  • Identify the value of work-related mentorships, especially within the community of professionals who work with survivors of gender based violence;
  • Explore the different types of mentoring relationships in order to discern the best fit for your work and style; and
  • Discuss strategies for locating, sustaining, and enhancing mentoring relationships.
