Kathleen Barrett, Member of the Firm, speaks on a panel, "Mentorship Matters but Sponsorship Moves the Needle," at the Driving Diversity in Law & Leadership conference, hosted by CenterForce.

As you advance in your career, pursuing growth opportunities requires confidence, creativity, and a strong network–including the right mentors. But who is vouching for you behind closed doors? The right sponsor can be instrumental in pushing you forward and seeing that you are considered for that next opportunity.

This panel explores:

  • Differentiating sponsors from mentors and other influencers
  • Sponsorship and its impact on DEI
  • Identifying and cultivating effective sponsors
  • Paying it forward: How best to advocate for others
