It literally changed my life and career by giving me the additional support, information, connections, and one-on-one attention I needed to make change in my individual job and to expand my thinking in larger ways. Before I applied to be a mentee, I was so frustrated with recent leadership changes at my station and the challenges in our industry that I felt very negative about my ability to make positive change and grow to my full potential. I was literally inches away from quitting the field and my job. Instead, I have been able to expand my connections, build additional confidence, and take steps to create a more fulfilling career. I have tried to give back while being part of the pilot program by informing others about the FB group and the webinars and saying “yes” to any woman’s request for guidance. - Pilot Mentor Program Member
