Mentoring As A Learning Exchange

From this week’s highly recommended Better Allies newsletter:

…View mentoring as a learning exchange. In other words, it’s not an activity that someone in a dominant group or position of authority does for someone else. By contrast, we should consider it a partnership where both people learn together … when we share our experiences and advice with others, we have the opportunity to help them grow in their careers. But mentoring is a two-way street, and we’ll learn from mentees and grow in our careers, too.
