    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.

    Empowering Women Through Mentoring Relationships

    in Training

    Here are some sobering statistics I will discuss with my guest Alison Martin-Books:



    57% of women are targeted for workplace bullying.
    Women make up 51% of the U.S. population but only hold 16% of seats in Congress.
    Only 2% of women think they’re beautiful.
    A girl is bullied every 7 minutes on the playground or in the classroom.
    90% of women want to change at least one aspect of their physical appearance.  


    Alison Martin-Books, the founder of the Mentoring Women’s Network, will explain how mentoring women can empower them at work and in school.


    The Mentoring Women's Network is a national nonprofit organization that supports mentoring programs for women. In addition, the organization has created a proprietary training and software program to aid in the matching and scheduling of mentors and protégés. Alison is also the author of “Landing on My Feet: Learning to Lead Through Mentoring."
