Mentoring and sponsoring are key tools for retaining talent and promoting diversity. Mentorship and sponsorship programs help organizations thrive through building trust, expanding networks, improving communication, increasing visibility, and fostering more inclusive teams.

If retaining talent and promoting diversity in the workforce is a goal for your organization, it’s critical to take a systemic approach that starts with a focus on equity. Helping people of all identities and backgrounds feel supported, valued, and engaged through an intentional mentorship and sponsorship program is a great place to start.
