Mentoring People of Color for Successful Careers
A couple of years ago, View Magazine called our series, Diversity: Creating Success for Business and People "one of the best products about diversity on the market." And customers agreed!
Now, we can offer you a follow-up series from the same company, ARMC. Building a Diverse Workforce for the Global Millennium is a 20-volume series that covers a huge variety of diversity issues.
Each program also presents critical business concepts like building trust and respect, performance appraisals, team building and leadership.
Program #4: "Will My Mentor Make A Difference? Mentoring People of Color for Successful Careers"
The lack of effective mentoring can be a factor in the low retention rate of people of color. In this scenario, you’ll watch a mentoring session with a White male senior executive and a Hispanic woman. The segment illustrates the pitfalls of subtle racism and sexism, and also provides a valuable setting for discussing mentoring skills.
