“We are continuously identifying new opportunities for our members to connect and grow their personal and professional networks via mentorship,” said Erika Broadwater, National President of NAAAHR. “While the pandemic has prevented in-person mentorship opportunities, Mentor Spaces has found a new and innovative way for Black professionals to make virtual connections. We are thrilled to be partnering with Mentor Spaces to connect our members with the next generation of Black human resource professionals.”
NAAAHR and Mentor Spaces will provide opportunities for members to become mentors on the Mentor Spaces platform in order to foster group mentorship and provide a resource for members to build inclusive talent pipelines across the United States.
