For young professionals, having a mentor is often encouraged and touted; however, knowing how to find and effectively engage in such relationships is not necessarily easy or intuitive. Drawing on primary and secondary research funded by the Plank Center for Leadership in Public Relations, seminar leader and VP of Communications for Edible Arrangements, Alicia Thompson, APR, will help attendees learn to better understand and navigate mentoring relationships.

Alicia will share both personal experience and research insights derived from a survey of more than 400 millennial PR professionals; interviews with 50+ PR professionals and students across five countries; and a review of nearly 200 mentoring studies and articles. Specific topics include best organizational and interpersonal mentoring practices, mentoring’s role in growing diverse organizations and mentoring’s connection to leadership development.

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Define what research tells us about mentorship's value to PR practitioners in both the U.S. and abroad, and its link to PR leadership.
  • Reflect on the different kinds of mentors (personal, academic, professional) and will learn about the importance of mentorship in growing diverse, inclusive workplaces.
  • Analyze the 10 best organizational and interpersonal mentoring practices and will receive practical tips and advice for building and fostering them.
