Great 10th Mentorship Tip: Millennials Beware: ‘You Can’t Let One Bad Guy Push You Out’

Forbes.com has been posting a 10 part Mentoring Moment series.  The series provides a lot of good insight. Since the WLMP focuses addressing the retention of women in the law as well as mentorship and leadership development for law students and young lawyers, we read a lot material on mentorship and leadership development. Overall this series has offers some good lessons.
