"A few weeks ago a female student visited IBM Research for a week and my manager asked me to mentor her because he felt that a female mentor would make a difference, and I think it did. While she was eager and enthusiastic from the start, I think spending the week with me put her at ease, and I'd like to work with more young female students and new hires so I can be a positive example for them."
