On the one hand, this post is way overdue. On the other hand, it’s right on time. Overdue because I was supposed to write a half-way summary of my co-mentorship relationship with Katie Rovere (@katierovere) , who’s on the board of GenKP, the Generation Y Employee Resource Group of Kaiser Permanente.
