As part of their ongoing efforts to promote professional mentorship with female executives, the Women's Executive Network (WXN) and American Express Canada have partnered to release "Mentorship Fundamentals," a practical new guide designed to help women start, structure and get the most from their mentorship relationships.
Both organizations believe that mentorship opens up opportunities for professionals at any career stage, from high-powered executives to junior employees. The right mentorship strategy can help an aspiring executive plan a career move, get feedback on a project or expand their professional network.
"Mentorship can be your window to the professional potential you have but just can't see yet. It's one of the best ways for leaders, women in particular, to get the support they need to take their careers to the next level," says Sherri Stevens, Owner and CEO of WXN. "Plus, mentorship is beneficial to both parties involved. The mentee gets advice and the mentor gets a fresh perspective, a personal connection to the next generation."
