Sexist ? - You decide
Thank you for your past participation in the NavyWomen eMentor program. Since that program sunsetted, and our AcademyWomen eMentor is restricted to women only, I'm sorry to inform you we had to delete your profile from the program. However, we are currently talking with several organizations regarding launching new eMentor programs that might apply to you, so please periodically check back to our site (http://academywomen.org/e-
mentorprogram.php) for announcements of new programs.
From where I sit, I am deeply saddened by this. I have faithfully carried out my responsibilities and have mentored a number of Navy men and women, young and old, every color of the spectrum and most ethnicities to greater levels of success (From E-1 to O-7). I never concerned myself with anything other than their desire to be helped and my willingness to help. Now I am told that I am the wrong sex to help. I don't do DIVERSITY THURSDAYS but this would be a good subject to discuss. I think I may have been discriminated against. You can always catch Diversity Thursdays over HERE. Check in tomorrow.
