Where are the biggest growth areas for women in cable?

What’s the most important aspect of mentoring?

The most important aspect of mentoring is the bilateral commitment between the mentor and mentee, based upon mutual trust and a commitment. The commitment of the mentor is to provide advice and help to the mentee in support of their goals.

The outcome of the mentor/mentee relationship is personal satisfaction and shared accomplishment.
