Forbes, "4 Ways Women Mentoring Women Can Change The World"

If there’s one theme to my writing here at Forbes, it’s the necessity of women to band together if we want to achieve equality in the workplace and beyond. The shameful display on Capitol Hill last month, as Brett Kavanaugh was rushed to confirmation despite Christine Blasey Ford’s credible accusations against him, only further underlines the fact that, all things being equal, men act to benefit themselves; as a rule, men benefit from the current power structures in place, and with no incentive to help dismantle them, will continue to prop them up and act in ways that benefit themselves. It’d be tragic if it weren’t commonplace, but it underscores a critical truth: if they won’t help us, we have to help ourselves. That fact applies to another topic I’m passionate about as well: mentorship.
