Thomson Reuters Patsy Doerr, global head of Corporate Responsibility & Inclusion, and Dave Curran, global director of Risk & Compliance, were in Philadelphia a few weeks ago and stopped by WWDB AM 860 radio to record an interview for Sue Rocco’s Women to Watch show. Their interview is airing on WWDB AM 860 today, Monday, Jan. 5, at 2 p.m. ET.

Catch the show on air, tune in here, or listen from your computer or radio if you’re in the U.S.

Doerr and Curran talk about the difference between having a mentor – someone seasoned who can give you guidance and develop your ideas – and a sponsor who can champion your career. They ask whether seeking a sponsor as well as a mentor could be a smart career move.

The show is frank about the things holding back people’s careers, including impostor syndrome – when you think you’re going to be ‘found out’ in a leadership position – and cultural issues such as research showing that some women avoid self aggrandizement and are less likely to seek self promotion, which can put them at a disadvantage in furthering their careers.
