Last year at DCW 2021, Jane shared one of the most important building blocks of the data center's professional growth - to establish mentorship around its ecosystems. Unfortunately, we are observing gaps of new generations' talents. So in an effort to bridge these gaps, we need to develop and grow their talent – essentially creating an industry-wide "mentoring culture". This is critical to the longevity and health of our industry.

This session is designed to take on bigger view of a corporate mentorship and mentee program. A mentoring culture is where an organization has embraced the "gift of mentoring" as a part of the way it operates.

Mentoring programs benefit organizations by improving job satisfaction and employee retention rates. However, the added benefit is attracting good talent. Let's embrace the "gift of mentoring" as a new path for your company.
