We Mentor One Another
Mary Lou Jepsen on the critical nature of female mentorship.
MARY LOU JEPSEN: I think women having each other's backs is extremely important. People talk about mentors. And I didn't really have any women mentors, because there weren't any women in the universities I was in. There weren't any women before me. But I thought that, instead of mentors, you have the people you come up with. And they're the ones that you share with and can help and debug the systems when they become problematic, which happened a lot.
