Mentor Spaces Announces Its Partnership With NAAAHR to Encourage Underrepresented Talent

Mentor Spaces, a virtual mentorship platform that helps companies scale their diversity and inclusion efforts, announced today a partnership with the National Association of African Americans in Human Resources (NAAAHR) to support Black professionals working in human resources and foster group mentorship opportunities with NAAAHR members and corporate partners.

NAAAHR exists to provide a unique global forum for the career development of Black and African American human resources professionals. Incorporated in September 1998, NAAAHR is an inspirational and unique career development and networking powerhouse for Black and African American human resources practitioners. It provides networking, career opportunities, educational and professional development, mentorship and coaching, and resources in order to enhance the careers of its members and position them to be key contributors of the strategic direction of their organizations.

“We are continuously identifying new opportunities for our members to connect and grow their personal and professional networks via mentorship,” said Erika Broadwater, National President of NAAAHR. “While the pandemic has prevented in-person mentorship opportunities, Mentor Spaces has found a new and innovative way for Black professionals to make virtual connections. We are thrilled to be partnering with Mentor Spaces to connect our members with the next generation of Black human resource professionals.”

NAAAHR and Mentor Spaces will provide opportunities for members to become mentors on the Mentor Spaces platform in order to foster group mentorship and provide a resource for members to build inclusive talent pipelines across the United States. This includes an exclusive, private space on the Mentor Spaces platform, where they will have an opportunity to network with each other, communicate best practices and share experiences in their respective roles. This space will provide NAAAHR members with the opportunity to facilitate engagement between mentors from their respective organizations and early career professionals.
