A lot of hard work and mix of mentors helped FOX’s NFL reporter Laura Okmin break the barriers of a male dominated field and ultimately assume the position to cover the biggest names on the biggest stages including over ten Super Bowls, two Olympics, multiple NBA Finals, World Series and All-Star games. Now she’s paying it forward by helping to train, mentor, and prepare the next generation of women in sports media with her new program, GALVANIZE. Having experienced both sides of the mentee and mentor relationship, Laura is here to share her best practices and lessons learned for creating the most successful two-sided relationship to ensure it is a win-win. We will also get up close and personal in a fireside chat with real-life mentor and mentee, Anthony Ostler, SVP at Global Services and Stacy Dawson Belf, MD at Alternative Investment Solutions – both part of State Street’s PWN Mentoring Circles program. Whether you are looking to develop your leadership skills or seeking guidance to put you on a path for a promotion or high profile assignment, this session will arm you with practical tips for leveraging a mentor program to support your multifaceted career journey.
