“I asked for it to be a male mentor just because I always wanted to see their perspective, because I knew what women’s perspective was. I wanted to see from their point of view what women would need to do differently, or what we are doing differently, that we need to do similar to the majority people in workforce. So, I made a conscious choice to have a male mentor. “ – Vinti Luthra
