Understanding Mentor to those starting out

Kila J. Englebrook, Associate Director, Ashoka’s United States Program

“I’m fortunate to have had the experience of learning from Ilene. Not only is she an expert in her field, but she naturally plays a role as a mentor for new colleagues and teammates. She was essential in my skills-learning, and this was because she has a level of awareness of people and their development needs that makes her very open to sharing, teaching and helping people.”
