"Women need more seats at the table," Sheryl Sandberg, CEO of Facebook said in her best-selling book Lean In. One of the reasons more women are not at the corporate board table is that women do not have as many female role models and female mentors. Mentors and role models enable women to see what is possible through their eyes, their gender, and their experiences. Women who have made it also need to be committed to paying it forward.
