5. Networking and Mentoring-

In a recent study I conducted for a project at Harvard University, networking and mentorship were important variables in expanding opportunities for women in leadership roles.  These connections and networks provided a sustainable system that allowed women to not only stay in their fields beyond their mid-career point, but allowed them to negotiate for higher level positions.
