A photo of two young women at a WELD eventMentorship and sponsorship of women have substantial impact – both for the leader and the protégé. Women who mentor and sponsor other women and share stories of their leadership journey derive several benefits.  It provides them the opportunity to celebrate and pay forward their success while developing rich relationships with other women.  Mentors and sponsors increase their understanding of issues impacting younger generations, providing them more insight as business leaders.

According to research performed by the Harvard Business Review, “68% of women who have a sponsor reported being satisfied with their career advancement. Women with sponsors are 27% more likely than their unsponsored female peers to ask for a raise and 22% more likely to ask for the ‘stretch assignments’ that build their reputations as leaders. The truth is that sponsors better position women to advance in the workplace.”

WELD provides women leaders opportunities to pay forward their success. Our program and events feature successful business and community leaders who donate their time and talent to share their lessons in leadership and strategies for career success.  Volunteering to serve on chapter steering committees or on the WELD national board expands one’s ability to impact the lives of women in their communities and beyond.
