Patti Austin Talks About “Mentorology” and Her Part on “We Are The World” Event

By on Thursday, January 28th, 2010 in News

The Grammy Award-winning singer Patti Austin talking about her “Mentorology – The Art of Mentoring,” project and her part on the upcoming “We Are The World” event , on Good Day LA Thursday morning.

Here’s her thoughts on the importance of becoming a mentor:

“…I begin to think of the songs that came out of the civil rights movement and the artists that were inspired to offer up their soul stirring creations to empower people to bring on cultural change. Needless to say, we are at that time in our history again. For me, music is the strongest door opener to the hearts and minds of the people. I want to use recorded music, videos, concerts and social networking as the “stimulus package” to re-energize the focus on forward thinking approaches to education as the key factor in eradicating poverty for the coming generation. Learning should never stop for all age groups. We can empower millions to realize the opportunity to help shape a new society of creative “mentorologists” in all areas of life.” – Patti Austin

Went to LA City Controller Wendy Greuel's first "Women's Forum on Women & the Environment." What was special is she asked each leader/commissioner/etc. what their "Aha!" moment was, if they had a mentor, and who they've mentored (and why). I asked for a recording of the forum, and when I get it, I will send to you. Also, save the date for the Women's Summit - April 29th!
