Mentoring Tip Mentoring People Who Aren't Like You

"It took me years to understand this basic dynamic: Those who look less like me might find it hard to share their concerns with me or ask for help. They might feel uncomfortable raising their hand if they aren’t sure I will identify with them. And it’s on me, as the leader, to help close that gap." 

-Richard Farnell in his article "Mentor People Who Aren't Like You" from the Harvard Business Review
