Our Women in Technology (WIT) Sponsorship Program pairs high-potential women technologists with BNY Mellon technology leaders to help women grow their professional networks, develop new skills and be considered for leadership positions.
Senior leaders sponsor employees to help them grow their professional networks, develop new skills and be considered for leadership positions. A lack of sponsorship for women can hold many high-performing women employees back, excluding them from their organizations’ most influential networks.
BNY Mellon’s Women in Technology (WIT) group, organized under our business resource group WIN and affiliated with the Anita Borg Institute, is driving equal access to sponsorship opportunities. Each year, WIT’s Sponsorship Program pairs more than a dozen high-potential women technologists with BNY Mellon technology leaders. For more than six months, sponsors work with protégés to attain leadership positions and reach career goals by publicly advocating for them. Protégés gain access to career opportunities, expand their networking skills and broaden their experience through stretch goals and assignments. They gain valuable visibility by leading a special task force and presenting to the Client Technology Services Executive and Operating Council.
