Doing some mentoring
June 30, 2011 § Leave a comment
Last week two of us (long-tenured women) had dinner with a tenure-track woman philosopher who was uncertain about what steps to take towards publication. We were happy to give her advice, and I was glad that she heard advice from more than one person (it is always best to have more than one mentor, I think). It seems only yesterday that I was seeking this kind of advice, and my gratitude to those who helped me (both men and women) is expressed in trying to help the next generation.
