  • Title: Multicultural Multigenerational Diversity: Mentoring - the right ingredient to creating chemistry
    Speaker:Tammy Nunn Haynie, Diversity + Inclusion Program Manager, BASF

    Session Description: True mentoring is defined as a trusting relationship between a more experienced individual who focuses his/her energies in assisting another in personal and professional development. The mentor's role is to fully engage the mentee and to create an environment whereby the mentee will share the critical issues that affect his or her success. If mentoring is to be successful as a tool for the empowering employees, it needs to be truly diverse - representing everyone within the organization and not just women and people of color. By including the broadest spectrum of people, mentoring offers everyone the opportunity to grow professionally and personally without regard to gender or race. A successful mentoring program needs to balance the needs for inclusion with the need for fair presentation.
