Mentoring with a Twist!
Mentoring is not a new idea, but it’s one that has evolved over time. Be part of this discussion with BNY Mellon’s co-chair of their firm’s Women’s Initiatives Network (WIN) and co-founder of the Women’s Wall Street Alliance to learn about their recently piloted reverse mentoring efforts and other alternative options that can be a great balance to traditional mentoring programs. It’s mentoring with a twist!
