Q: I’m tired of how women are portrayed on reality TV as catty and shallow. How can we shift the mindset? How can we encourage leadership and mentorship among female professionals?

Still, we can each be a changer of stereotypes and a shifter of mindsets. Mentoring may be one of the most important ways to prove that women do lift up other women— professionally and personally.
