Every one of us needs different things at different times. A little structure around (mentorship), following through on whatever goals they set for themselves, sometimes helps people.
Most of my experiences [with mentorship] have been very informal; just having a conversation with somebody that you think can be a good sounding board, for an issue that you’re wrestling with. What we heard about today was a more structured approach, and I think we...
We really do need to get traction on issues, especially climate change, and mentorship is [a way] to educate people about it and to take action on it.
[Mentorship] gives you a feeling that you’ve been able to help someone who can help move the ball on issues that you care about.

You are always on stage. If you are in a leadership role, everyone you work with is watching. What you do and what you say matters. Be clear on the message you want your works and actions to convey.
