Women are in the spotlight of late especially on areas such as women representation on boards and gender pay gap. It made me think about the women around me and who I can turn to for support and mentorship during this stage in my life and in setting up the Rising Network. I am very fortunate to have a supportive network and recognise that we all need guidance and advice especially when it comes to career advancement and progression.
Have you found it difficult to find a female mentor, sponsor or role model within your career or whilst being an entrepreneur/setting up your own business?
Or would you like to make a career shift but you have found it challenging to seek advice from another woman who has done it before to get hold of lessons learnt and guidance?
DO YOU THINK THAT THE LACK OF FEMALE ROLE MODELS IN YOUR LIFE HAS BEEN A BARRIER TO YOUR SUCCESS?
I would like to know your thoughts on this and please share your experiences within this forum. I would love to hear from you. Lily
