Many of the women in leadership that I coach want to elevate the voices of other women in their organisation and create opportunities for them to succeed.
Sponsoring is a brilliant way to do this.
Mentoring is common in the UK and is usually a supporter who will share advice and their experiences, and be a sounding board for you.
A sponsor goes a step further than that. This is an individual within your organisation who will champion you, advocate for you, help you to raise your profile and get new opportunities.
If you’re in the position to sponsor some of the women that work for you and champion them in your organisation, here’s 6 ways you can do that.
Special thanks to Mylene Sylvestre and Elizabeth Bachman who shared impactful ways to sponsor women and how to avoid the Glass Cliff on recent episodes of my podcast.
