  • I've encountered this consistently in my career -- women not helping each other, competing with each other, more successful women refusing to mentor or help out younger, less experienced women. I'm trying really hard not to engage in this terrible dynamic as I get more senior in my career, but this really saddens me. When we talk about the glass ceiling imposed on women by men I think we should also remember that many issues that women face re not advancing as quickly/significantly in the corporate world are caused by women themselves.
