Working Caregivers Roundtable: Finding Mentors and Sponsors for Busy Caregivers


Join us twice-monthly to connect with other working parents and caregivers through structured conversation, rotating special guests and topics. Hosted by working parent consultant Lisa Durante.

Thu, Mar 25, 2021 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT

This week's topic: How caregivers can find mentors and sponsors in our busy, messy virtual life.

As busy caregivers with endless to-do lists, it can feel difficult to invest in strategic relationships at work. Add to that the fact that most of us aren’t currently co-located with our colleagues and the challenge feels even greater. 

Kim Meninger, a woman's leadership coach, joins us this week. She'll share how to Build mentoring and sponsoring relationships that don't have to be time-consuming or anxiety-provoking. In this session, we will explore how to best:

  • Identify potential mentors and sponsors
  • Initiate and further nurture these relationships
  • Interact confidently and effectively in our new virtual world

This event is open to all parents and caregivers. You are free to join this Zoom meeting however you feel most comfortable - with the cameras on or off.

We only ask that you come ready to create a supportive and interactive experience. You can do this by coming with something to give (insights, experiences) or something to ask (questions, support).

Session Agenda:

  • 1:00 - 1:10: Welcome & Introductions
  • 1:10 - 1:40: Facilitated discussion (main room or across breakout rooms)
  • 1:40 - 1:55: Crowdsourcing Solutions
  • 1:55 - 2:00: Wrap up
