Management Mentors explores diversity and mentoring in its upcoming Internet radio show on Friday, October 19, 2007, at 9:00 a.m. (EDT).

Mentoring Matters: Mentoring in Today’s Business World

As it continues to celebrate Diversity Awareness Month, Management Mentors will discuss diversity and mentoring during its upcoming Internet radio show "Mentoring Matters: Mentoring in Today’s Business World" on the VoiceAmerica Business Channel on Friday, October 19, from 9-10 a.m. (EDT). People can listen directly from their PCs in the comfort of their homes or offices. Management Mentors’ shows will also be archived so listeners can listen whenever they want.

During Friday’s show, Management Mentors president Rene Petrin will discuss how differences in ethnicity, gender, disabilities, and other issues affect mentoring relationships. Joining him will be David Buggs from FedEx Kinko’s and John Awosoga from City of London Police. Petrin says, "We know that people are more likely to mentor someone who looks like them rather than someone who is unlike them. One of the benefits of a formal mentoring program is that it can pair people who would not normally come together. Coupled with training and an understanding of what mentoring is, these relationships will often be profoundly transforming for both partners. During this show, we’ll discuss the importance of diversity training and diversity in mentoring."

Upcoming Internet radio show topics for "Mentoring Matters" include the following: recruitment and mentoring, how to start a mentoring program, how to manage a mentoring program, success stories, communication strategies, technology and mentoring, plus much, much more.
