Opening the Shut Door - Davia Temin Speaks to Women in Financial Services on the Power of Mentoring for Career Advancement

Jun 02, 2010, 11:00 ET from Temin and Company

NEW YORK, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- "Mentoring can help women open doors they don't even know are shut," says Davia Temin, a strategic marketing, reputation, and women's leadership expert who spoke last week to a select group of women leaders at one of the world's largest financial services institutions.

"If women in business are going to rise up quickly – currently they make up only 6.3% of Fortune 500 top earners – they need helping hands to pull them up, and then they need to pull up the women behind them. That is my mission in giving this seminar – to inspire the forward motion of women in business."

Conducting an in-depth, interactive seminar for 65 women dubbed "high-potentials," Ms. Temin discussed how they could advance more rapidly and more profitably by tapping into the right mentors.

"The term 'mentoring' dates back to the Greeks, and everyone has a different definition in mind. But done well, it can make all the difference to a woman's career. It can catapult a talented woman to the CEO, Board, and senior executive levels."

"Mentors," says Ms. Temin, "come in all shapes, sizes, and experience levels. What they have in common is a willingness to teach what is often left untaught in business and to actively advocate for their mentees in halls of power."

Ms. Temin is founder and CEO of Temin and Company, which advises leading organizations and their executive teams on reputation and crisis management, strategic marketing and leadership, and media and communications strategy.
