Athena Rising: A Discussion with David Smith & W. Brad Johnson

Watch this presentation for a 30 minute Q&A with David Smith & W. Brad Johnson, authors of Athena Rising: Why Men Should Mentor Women.

Organizations that retain and promote top talent – both female and male – are more likely to thrive. But the mentoring landscape is unequal. Evidence consistently shows that women face more barriers in securing mentorships than men, and when they do find a mentor, they may reap a narrower range of both career and psychological benefits. Learn how to mentor women deliberately and effectively.

This webinar includes 20 minutes of facilitator-led conversation followed by 10 minutes of audience Q&A.
