Webinar Announcement: Mentorship and Sponsorship-The Road to Success

Are you looking for professional development, advancement, or both? What are the differences between mentors and sponsors? What kind of relationship should you seek to achieve your professional goals? This webinar will address the differences between mentors and sponsors and the value and benefits of both kinds of relationships. We will look at formal and informal approaches to mentorship and sponsorship, including the AIPLA Mentorship program, and help you to determine which one may suit you best. We will also consider how mentorship and sponsorship or lack thereof affects advancement and retention of women in IP, and the legal field in general, and what we may expect in the future. Please join our distinguished speakers, Mercedes K. Meyer, Ph.D., Drinker Biddle & Reath, LLP; Carey C. Jordan, McDermott Will & Emery, LLP; Margaret (“Meg”) A. Boulware, Boulware & Valoir; and Hetal Kushwaha, Marks & Clerk Canada, each of whom will be drawing upon and sharing her experiences, for a thoughtful and important discussion. The webinar will be moderated by Shawna Lemon of Myers Bigel Sibley & Sajovec, PA.

Please join the Women in IP Law Committee’s free webinar on March 13, 2014 at 12:30 pm EST.
