With a Little Help from My Friends: The Importance of Mentorship and Sponsorship

Session Host/Speaker(s)

Join the annual UC Women in Tech featured presentation. This year, Jenn Stringer, Associate Vice Chancellor for IT and Chief Information Officer at UC Berkeley, will host a talk about the value – particularly for women – of having both mentors and sponsors to help guide them in their careers. She will discuss how a mentor differs from a sponsor, why each are important, how to establish these relationships, and how her own career path was shaped and supported through this crucial network. She will take Q&A from the audience.
