Each January, National Mentoring Month shines a light on the positive impact mentoring can have on people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. Career mentoring can be especially beneficial for both workers with disabilities and employers because it supports employee retention and workforce inclusion.
The Employer Assistance and Resource Network on Disability Inclusion (EARN) offers a variety of resources on workplace mentoring, including the Workplace Mentoring Playbook and a fact sheet on mentoring as a disability inclusion strategy.
In addition, the nonprofit organization MENTOR has developed a series of toolkits to help stakeholders, including employers, celebrate National Mentoring Month.
