how to mentor
Thanks for the great advice on how to find and foster a mentor, Neelam! I agree on how important a good mentor can be to anyone's career, but I also can appreciate that both women and men at the top are extremely busy running things at the top. They should want to give back and "pay it forward," but I imagine also have to identify individuals they see with significant potential to groom them to move forward rather than have an open office door policy for everyone.

Another way they can give back is to speak at events, like our WiC networking breakfasts, to offer their insights and advice to others in the industry. We aim to connect mentees and mentors on WiC as well, even if for 30-minute "interviews" to pick their brains and start a dialouge.
