Blazing the Trail: A Qualitative Case Study of Mentoring in a Gender Equity Leadership Development Program
Journal of Business Diversity
This instrumental qualitative case study examines a formal mentoring program in fulfillment of a National Science Foundation (NSF) ADVANCE grant at SouthEast University. A total of 38 executive mentors and 58 protégées participated in a program that promoted gender equity leadership, professional development, and advancement. The purpose of this study was to explore mentor and mentee perceptions of learning and development experiences, and to determine the efficacy of program elements and leadership pipeline access for women faculty. Based on the results, we offer suggestions for improvement and lessons learned that can help inform similar combined mentoring and leadership development initiatives.
