In this episode, we continue the sponsorship prep work you started in Episode 5. Now that you know what you are bringing to the table it’s time to put that knowledge into the action steps in the episode.
In this episode, building from last week’s episode, we focus on getting ready for sponsorship. Before we start targeting potential leaders in the organization, we some work to do on ourselves first. Once we have prepped, we give ourselves a better chance to ask for sponsorship. We talk about building your narrative, understanding your organization, and how NOT to ask for sponsorship.
In this episode, Michelle Silverthorn, Founder and CEO of Inclusion Nation, a diversity consulting firm based in Chicago, joins me for a TRILL convo about Sponsors. We break down what are they, why they are critical to your career success, and what you need to think about when working to gain Sponsor relationships in your organization.
