According to a 2013 survey commissioned by Bentley University on preparedness and women in the workplace, the importance of mentorship programs is greatly underscored.
As women grow in their leadership capabilities and are eligible for promotions, they need someone to turn to for support in reaching that next level. Mentors can support your career ambitions and help you reach your goals by offering useful guidance and encouraging you to succeed. Additionally, having someone in your company who can act as a sponsor, directly advocating for you in terms of career advancement, is equally important.
