Perspectives on Successful Executive Sponsorship

Don’t miss this round of conversations with corporate executives on the importance of executive sponsorship and its effect on diversity and inclusion. Each leader will discuss their personal experiences both searching for a sponsor and becoming sponsors themselves, and how it has enhanced their leadership skills and job satisfaction. We’ll also explore how executives apply a DEI lens when reflecting on which projects and people to sponsor, and how taking on this role allows them to create an environment to advance corporate culture initiatives.
