I would also prefer a minority female mentory but we have to make the best out of what we have and you did an amazing job of doing that.

His advice to build a network was very smart but it is so much more difficult for us.

The men he brought you around demonstrated the lack of respect that Black women receive in the workplace.

He did not seem to understand at first but I am glad he came around. Hopefully, this is a sign for good things to come.
