AT&T's Brooks McCorcle and Sue Galvanek talk about how the carrier's focus on mentoring has cultivated a more diverse office culture that is helping to encourage women to flourish in IT careers.
Paving A Path
Mentoring programs and the right office space can cultivate an experience that both men and women can benefit from when they come to work. At least, that's telecom giant AT&T's perspective.
AT&T has an excellent track record for mentorship. About 60 percent of the women in AT&T's management ranks are in a mentoring relationship, and the programs also include men, according to Brooks McCorcle, president of AT&T Partner Solutions and Sue Galvanek, vice president of marketing, pricing and product solutions for AT&T Partner Exchange.
McCorcle and Galvanek sat down with Women of the Channel Online to share how the Dallas-based carrier's focus on helping women succeed in IT careers through mentorship has paved the way for a more diverse and accepting office culture.
