“So often, HR and Diversity professionals are responsible for the development of their employees, but rarely have an outlet for themselves to be able to gain perspective in the form of mentorship and have access to 1:1 mentoring for themselves. These programs are designed to allow opportunities for peer group mentorship as well as 1:1 mentoring on topics of the participants choosing and both programs are eligible for SHRM credits, said Alison Martin, Managing Partner of Engage Mentoring.

Today’s business world understands the significance of mentoring and how it can propel people to new personal and professional heights. Mentorships, like apprenticeships in previous generations, have the power to pass on hard-earned, practical industry expertise in ways that traditional training cannot. This is one of the most effective strategies to develop the next generation of managers and executives from inside the business. Nevertheless, for decades, the mechanics of establishing mentor/mentee relationships and timetables inside and especially between companies have been challenging.

The HR Leadership Forum

The new HR Leadership Forum is designed for HR professionals at all career levels. The program enables HR executives to join a peer mentoring community where they may learn and grow as both a mentor and a mentee from others in the program. This is a leadership program for Human Resources Leaders who are committed to their own and others’ growth. “The program gives an opportunity for growth and networking,” she noted.

“Together, we are building the largest and most effective professional mentoring program for HR leaders in the nation. We have seen a lot of interest from HR partner organizations and professionals as we are living in a very critical time in this industry for engagement,” said Alison Martin.

The Diversity Leadership Forum

The Diversity Leadership Forum is a program designed for diversity professionals who are responsible for developing a successful diverse workforce inside their organization to interact in a secure environment. The program provides contacts as well as possibilities for advancement.

“The foundation of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in any workplace is access to relationships. Emotionally intelligent leaders and teams are critical to the health and strength of any organizational culture. Organizations that get this right drive cultures where teams communicate better, collaborate effectively and create meaningful relationships. This helps to ensure their most valuable asset (talent within the organization) feels seen and motivated to be their best. We developed the Diversity Leadership Forum so that professionals could learn from each other and implement best practices,” said Yalonda Brown, president of diversity initiatives at Engage Mentoring.

This is a leadership program for diversity experts to cooperate in a safe environment with other diversity professionals. The program provides contacts as well as possibilities for advancement. Participants in the Leadership 1:1 mentorship development program select leadership themes based on an initial assessment, then select a mentor to focus on one issue every three months. Leadership, confidence, communication skills, executive presence, business acumen, presentation skills, managing diversity, and developing via coaching are some examples of such subjects.

The CEO Leadership Forum

The CEO Leadership Forum is an organized mentoring program that allows CEOs to engage with other top executives while also receiving coaching on the numerous difficulties they confront. “Its goal is to enhance the potential of existing and future leaders. “This program creates a secure environment for like-minded people-focused leaders,” Martin says.

Founded by Alison Martin, who also serves as managing director, and Yalonda Brown, president of diversity initiatives, Engage Mentoring provides a scalable platform, ranging from best-in-class software to structured employee mentorship programs, that can assist businesses in removing the logistical challenges associated with mentorship and significantly increasing the organizational benefits realized from encouraging employees to assist one another.
