All over the globe, the number of women moving into positions of leadership is increasing and mentoring has been recognized as a powerful tool to enable their careers. The current research on mentoring, however, has been done predominantly in Western contexts and using samples that are predominantly white. Although mentoring is a global phenomenon, there is still much to learn about how this important developmental relationship evolves in different cultural contexts. Given these conditions, the research team explored the role of mentoring in the career experiences of Indian women. The research presented in this seminar begins to address these gaps in our understanding of mentoring.
In this interactive seminar, CGO Faculty Affiliate Stacy Blake-Beard and her research team; Oscar Holmes, IV, Todd Jenkins, and Crystal Daughtery will share their findings from a pilot qualitative study of the mentoring experiences of Indian women. Through their work, they will present some insights into the state of mentoring in India and the role that mentoring plays in empowering the female Indian workforce. They are particularly interested in utilizing the seminar as a forum to explore the challenges and opportunities that arise at the intersection of national culture and gender.
