Sponsorship Experiences

All experiences can now be delivered VIRTUALLY as well as Face-to-Face.

Left to our own devices, we are far more likely to advocate for someone in the workplace because of an affinity bias (a tendency to associate with those who are like us), or a stereotyping bias (assuming someone will fit into a certain stereotype because of superficial information we have about them).

In fact, this is one argument as to why the pace of change in creating inclusive workplaces has been so slow – those currently in senior leadership roles unconsciously tend to support, or informally sponsor, those who are like them, creating a perpetual cycle.

The Sponsorship experience key outcomes include:

R

Building senior leadership awareness that the employee experience is not equal

R

Creating safe spaces to have real and gutsy conversations around the privileges and biases that exist in all workplaces

R

Providing senior leaders access to talented individuals who are ‘different’ to them and address potential blind spots as to what ‘talent’ looks like

R

Using a Sponsors’ power, privilege and reputational capital to promote, protect and propel talented individuals and in return, accelerate a Sponsees’ confidence, connections and career opportunities.

R

Enhancing leadership effectiveness and promote adopting a person-centred approach to leadership

R

Changing and improving newly-acknowledged systemic bias in the workplace collectively

“The opportunity to uncover so much talent across our organisation was most beneficial. The program really surfaced an amazing group of people that were previously unseen by me”.

“It’s not enough for you to just be really good at what you do. You need people who actually know how good you are, and they’re able to personally vouch for you”.

“I am certain I wouldn’t have just been promoted if it wasn’t for my sponsor talking about me to the leadership team and challenging them. I think I would have got there eventually but it most definitely would have taken longer”.
