Mentorship comes in many forms, but it is essential to the health of any industry. It’s how young professionals get trained and championed into new roles and responsibilities how a new generation is ushered in. In this panel, we’ll explore why mentorship is so important, especially to underrepresented communities, and how we can build effective and inclusive mentorship models in the publishing industry. With the help of speakers who have mentored, been mentored or run mentorship programs, we’ll discuss the many forms mentorship can take and its potential to drive progress and innovation in our industry.
