Welcome to the very first episode of Mentor Memos, the new podcast from the Girlboss Radio Network, produced in partnership with TRESemmé. In each episode, Girlboss COO Neha Gandhi chats with a different pair of mentors and mentees about their relationship and the biggest lessons they’ve taught each other. For our first conversation, we hear from the one and only, Cecile Richards, founder of Supermajority and former CEO of Planned Parenthood. While Cecile was at Planned Parenthood, she worked with Kersha Deibel, who soon expressed interest in rising as a leader within the organization. Over time, Cecile began mentoring Kersha and connecting her with other people who could help her advance. Fast forward to today, and Kersha acts as the CEO to Planned Parenthood in Ohio. Cecile continues to watch and stay a part of her mentee’s career by uplifting and providing opportunity whenever possible. Tune in to hear how Kersha first approached Cecile about a mentorship, how the two contribute equally to the relationship, and why it’s so important to have female women in leadership roles.
