Time Inc. employees have access to more than 80 mentors across the company. The mentors are leaders from a diversity of departments and backgrounds who volunteer to guide mentees in skills from effective leadership to design and project management. Meet Pam Abbott, VP, Digital General Manager, Style.
Why is mentorship important?
I have been so fortunate to have strong women as mentors. I’m proud to represent diversity at Time Inc. Representation matters.
What’s the most valuable lesson you learned from one of your own mentors?
Don’t be afraid to say “no”. Your time is your most valuable resource. I often will ask for meeting agendas, and send a delegate if I’m not crucial to the decision-making.
What's your career motto?
Perfect is the enemy of getting things done.
