    How to Start and Build a Cross-Cultural Mentoring Program

    in Training

    How do you start and build a cross-cultural mentoring program? When we think of mentoring programs in the workplace, we tend to think of programs that carefully match mentors and mentees who share some or a lot of cultural similarities.  


    But there’s another approach to mentor/mentee matching and that is identifying and pairing mentors and mentees who cross different cultures, such as mentors and mentees who come from different races, genders, ethnicities, religions, cultural backgrounds, socioeconomic backgrounds, sexual orientations, or nationality. 


    Today I will discuss this topic with my guest Jodi Davidson, Director of Diversity & Inclusion Initiatives at Sodexo.

    Closing the "Opportunity Gap" Through Mentoring Programs

    in Training

    How is it that some people wind up on top of the social heap and others wind up on the bottom? This question, which sociologists refer to as social mobility, has been studied for decades. Recently, the prominent sociologist Robert Putnam has published a new book that examines social mobility, income equality and the American Dream.


    What he uncovers is disturbing. Putnam says that social mobility is poised to plunge in the years ahead, shattering the American Dream.


    Why is this so and what can be done about it?


    On Friday, May 29, at 9:00 a.m. (PDT) I will be discussing this topic with my guest Mary Fernandez, the President of MentorNet, a division of Great Minds in STEM™. MentorNet implements a national, guided, one-to-one mentoring program that matches STEM students with STEM professionals in high-quality, virtual mentorships. By the way, STEM is the acronym for science, technology, engineering and math.


    This podcast is produced in cooperation with the University of Massachusetts at Boston's Chronicle of Evidence-Based Mentoring and Vince Reardon.

    in Training

    When you look at your career in today’s job market, experts say there are at least four key issues you must pay attention to: 1) job mobility, 2) globalization, 3) technology, and 4) the pace of change.


    Career experts say that to keep on track you need a steady job and a robust social network. But today’s guest, Wendy Murphy, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Management at Babson College, says you need something more to grow your career. You need to build strategic relationships at work. Specifically, you need to create a circle of mentors, sponsors and peers to be more successful at work and in life.

    The Natural Mentoring Experience

    in Self Help

    As a mentoring show I try to bring attention to what a great need there is for black people to share our experiences with each other, as being a perhaps, a first step or next step towards loving and caring about each other in an unprecedented manner.  For without love for each other, genuine love from the heart born of struggles and strifes, we flaunder terribly: very badly or unpleasantly. Although our intentions are honorable and heartfelt, does the white racism supremacist plan somehow filter in to disrupt our goals?  Maybe via our subconscious, so that our messages to each other are only half successful?  And the other half that is left is our multifaceted anger towards each other that lingers?  Have we not seen the video clips, sound bites of our people going at each other in a fashion that would make the white racist supremist proud of their handy work?  And in the end we are left with what we started with, their plan to divide and conquer, as we’ve seen them do through our history.  Shame on us for not being smarter, more intelligent when it comes to our communications with each other. No need to be concerned about infiltrators, right?  We can easily do the work for them!  All too often we do.  So, with that in mind, let us try harder to have a collective mentoring experience, check egos at the threshold or portal, place on the table what you WILL and see who partakes.  If you heard my theme song:  Brown Baby and listen the words, it will be our own brown and black babies slipping through the cracks of the adults inability to insightfully relate to each other,so the babies will drink from the plenty cup!  FYI, that cups is filled with more than just the materialism of a corrupt capitalistic society or world they/we live in...the ancestors are watching us, they know, we know, so lets do what we know, we can't lose that way, remember, what WE know!
