"I mentor a lot of new quadriplegics and quadriplegics who are having insurance challenges. It is one of my greatest “highs” in life you can say because when someone is willing to become their own self advocate, but just needs some help, it brings me incredible joy to watch them grow as human beings as
they follow my guidance."
Ali Ingersoll, Disability Advocate & Participant in
"The Role Models and Mentors"
Round Table, DI-NC 2021 Fall Conference.
The benefits of mentoring are not confined to the mentees. Businesses and the mentors themselves also derive considerable benefit from participating in mentoring programs. A 2013 study, “Career Benefits Associated with Mentoring for Mentors,” published in the Journal of Vocational Behavior, mentors versus non-mentors were more satisfied with their jobs and had a stronger sense of commitment to the organization as a whole when they were engaged in a mentoring program. (Rahashi Chocsh, 2013). Join us on October12th and learn more about mentoring and other strategies to expand disability employment and equality as we focus on "Unlocking Your Inclusivity".
The registration for this virtual event is $25.00 per person.
DI-NC Sponsors and Members will receive a complimentary registration.
