Pay It Forward

Updated: Jun 28

Greetings, leaders and change-makers!

This past April, I had the incredible opportunity to support a multicultural leadership program, which prompted me to reflect deeply on my journey of mentorship and coaching.

Before starting my business, I dedicated over two decades to a non-profit organization. During that time, I formed relationships that were pivotal in shaping my leadership and personal development.

I recall one conversation about my future in which I boldly asked, "How do I get your job?"

It was direct and to the point, sparking a mentor/mentee relationship that endured for years. I sought career advice and asked for opportunities to gain experience, and gradually, I connected with people who sought me out as their mentor or coach to support their growth.

I've discovered through mentorship so many benefits, and why I continue to champion this practice:

It’s a Win-Win: Mentorship is a reciprocal relationship. I learn as much from my mentees as they do from me, fostering a dynamic exchange of knowledge and perspectives.

Personal Satisfaction and Fulfillment: There’s immense joy in contributing to another person’s growth and witnessing their journey unfold.

Develop Transferable Skills: Mentorship helps hone valuable skills across various domains and industries.

Mutual Learning: Engaging with mentees brings fresh ideas, insights, feedback, and, often, lasting friendships.

Networking Experience: Mentorship expands your professional network, creating opportunities for collaboration and support.

Business Acumen: Being a mentor enhances your understanding of the evolving business landscape, keeping you informed and adaptable.

As a DEI strategist and executive coach, I am committed to helping leaders and organizations create inclusive workplace cultures using sustainable and equitable solutions. Book a consultation with me if you're ready to harness the power of mentorship to drive team success. Together, we can foster growth, innovation, and inclusivity in your organization.
