#104: Mentoring in the #MeToo Era

Today we’re talking about mentorship and how it’s been impacted by the #MeToo movement. This is a topic that keeps showing up on social media and news, as well as in my private workshops and masterminds, so I thought it was worthy of a discussion here on the podcast.

Things you will learn in this episode:

  • The unintentional consequences of the #MeToo movement and how it may negatively impact women getting mentorship and opportunities
  • Why mentorship of female associates is so critical and how we can make sure men continue to be involved in mentoring young women
  • My own experiences in being mentored as an associate and a powerful conversation I had with a male mentor that changed everything
  • What you can do depending on your gender, age and role to help make sure men are mentoring and investing in women (and traps to watch out for)
