Forget a Mentor, Find a Sponsor:

In an organization as complex as the federal government, it’s crucial to have a senior leader willing to throw your hat in the ring when opportunities to grow your career arise.

Please join us on the morning of Thursday, January 30, 2014 to hear economist, thought leader, and acclaimed author Sylvia Ann Hewlett discuss why sponsors are your proven link to success.

At this session, you will learn the:
• Elements that make a strong and mutually beneficial sponsorship
• Steps to create a path toward your greatest goals
