“Mentoring is about showing up and supporting your mentees. It’s about looking for opportunities and creating opportunities to uplift your mentees. It’s also about listening to your mentees and recognizing that you have just as much to learn from your mentees as they have to learn from you.”
We are proud to induct Stephanie Woodward into the Susan Daniels Disability Mentoring Hall of Fame.
