About this talk

Dr. Heather D. Wathington exemplifies our TriNet PeopleForce 2022 themes of purpose, passion and perseverance. After realizing that her passion lay with investing in people, she left the corporate world to focus on youth mentoring, especially in underserved communities. As CEO of iMentor, she matches kids from the company’s partner high schools with experienced adult professionals who guide and emotionally support them through high school. In this session, she explains why we are “critical vessels” for setting the next generation up for success and how Maya Angelou inspired her to help liberate others. She also discusses: • The journey of one student who ultimately enrolled at Morehouse • Why personalization, the one-on-one relationship, is so powerful for students • How social networks have changed the experience of mentoring today
