About the Lab
What is the Reciprocal Mentoring Lab (RML)?
The Reciprocal Mentoring Lab (RML) is a transformative learning process for mixed-gender mentoring pairs. During the RML, mentoring teams work with world-class faculty members during an intensive two-day workshop, which includes pre- and post-workshop assessments, webinars, and discussions. Ultimately, this mutually beneficial program equips participants with the skills, tools, and broader perspective to help create a reciprocal mentoring culture back on the job, as well as helping them lead with greater intention and integrity. The RML solution is offered as an Open Enrollment event, and can also be co-sponsored by a corporate partner (Metro Sponsored) or hosted within your organization (Client Based).
The RML is for organizations who want to invest in keeping and advancing their best talent into positions of greater leadership and influence.
Who is the RML for?
Built for rising and senior leaders (at a director level and above), the RML equips individuals to build their leadership brand and engage in meaningful mentoring relationships. The RML is also for organizations who want to invest in keeping their best talent and advancing them into positions of greater leadership and influence. Both existing and newly formed mixed-gender mentoring pairs are welcome.
How was the RML developed?
Based on research and the groundbreaking book Athena Rising: How And Why Men Should Mentor Women, the Lab’s curriculum is founded in the expertise and corporate experience of a world-class faculty including founder Chuck Shelton, Ancella Livers, Betsy Myers, Nancy Mace, W. Brad Johnson, PhD, and David Smith, PhD.
