Mentoring for Communicators: Why We All Benefit

As part of IABC’s work to develop strategic communicators, we’re looking at the role that mentoring can play. Mentoring (and reverse mentoring) can make a difference at all career stages. And it can make a difference at all ages.

In 2018, the International Executive Board (IEB) established a Task Force to explore current programs and better understand mentoring opportunities for IABC chapters. This Task Force sought to map and share existing good practice from chapters and regions, explore what a Theory of Change for mentoring at IABC should look like and create a framework that includes defining what is a mentor or mentee + types of mentorship.

Two of the Task Force members will join us to discuss how we can put mentoring into practice across EMENA. Drawing on their findings and the information set out in the IABC mentoring chapter toolkit, Michael Ambjorn and Michael Nord will show you how to make mentoring work for you and your chapter.
