Lift! Sponsorship That’s Rooted in Inclusion and Not Conformity
We know from extensive research that sponsorship is critical for supporting the advancement of professionals from equity-seeking backgrounds. The challenge is that, in providing their support, leaders often inadvertently coach for conformity to a dominant cultural normative instead of providing advocacy that’s rooted in equity and inclusion. In this webinar, Ritu Bhasin, DEI, leadership, and belonging expert, will share strategies for equipping leaders with the skills needed to build inclusive sponsorship relationships and to empower team members without pushing conformity. Relying on findings from her work in co-authoring the ground-breaking research report "Sponsor Effect: Canada", Ritu will discuss the following topics:

· What sponsorship is and how it differs from mentorship
· The link between belonging and inclusive sponsorship and why revealing cultural differences is critical in a sponsor/protégé relationship
· The key leadership responsibilities in offering support across cultural differences, including the must-do behaviors of an inclusive sponsor
· How to provide advocacy that's rooted in equity and inclusion, and not conformity
