There's a fine balance between creating entrepreneurial, organic mentoring pairs and using data to make sure it's the right match.
But it can be done, and done successfully, maintains Jodi Davidson, director of diversity and inclusion for Sodexo. (Sodexo is No. 6 on the DiversityInc 2016 Top 50 Companies for Diversity list, and among the Top 15 Companies for Mentoring.)
Joining Davidson was a mentee and a mentor who will discussed how it worked for them in their careers. They include Mia Mends, NORAM CEO for Sodexo's Benefits & Rewards business, an executive who found being mentored invaluable, and Joseph Cuticelli, CEO for Seniors, North America Sodexo, who has long mentored employees.
