Want More Diverse Senior Leadership? Sponsor Junior Talent
by Herminia Ibarra and Nana von Bernuth

With renewed corporate attention to racial equity - and a growing body of evidence showing that diversity programs don't work, especially for Black employees - many companies are turning to a different approach for diversifying their pipelines to the top: sponsorship - "helping relationship in which senior, powerful people use their personal clout to talk up, advocate for, and place a more junior person in a key role." Sponsors not only give feedback and advice, they also use their influence with other senior executives to advocate for your promotion and to ensure that you're visible to key decision-makers. Click HERE to learn how sponsorship can be a valuable tool for actively promoting employees from underrepresented groups into senior positions, stretch assignments, and mission-critical roles.
