Mentoring for Success
Many people ask me whether it is important for women to have other women as mentors. While I certainly believe in women supporting one another’s careers, I would advise to never turn down a mentor due to gender. In my career, the grocery supply chain business is traditionally a male-dominated field, so my opportunities for female mentors were few.
As a result, my mentors have been men who connected with me and challenged me to look at my career growth and opportunities in a new light. Remember: Mentors come in all sizes, ages and genders, it’s the support and trust that you build that counts more than anything.
