In this episode, we do a deep dive into the benefits of sponsorship with sponsor/sponsee pair Jonathan Atwood, former Head of Communications, Global Supply Chain at Unilever and Mita Mallick, Head of Inclusion, Equity and Impact at Carta (formerly Head of Diversity and Inclusion and Cross-Cultural Marketing at Unilever). They candidly share the story of their relationship, how sponsorship works, how it’s different than mentorship, and the power it has to nurture talent from underrepresented groups in particular. Mita also shares some tips for DEI leaders on how to design a sponsorship program.
