Mentoring Diverse Leaders Creating Change for People, Processes, and Paradigms

by Audrey J. Murrell

Mentoring Diverse Leaders Creating Change for People, Processes, and Paradigms Synopsis

Mentoring Diverse Leaders provides up-to-date research on the impact of mentoring relationships in organizations, particularly as they relate to cultivating diverse leadership. Contributions from experts in the fields of psychology, business, law, non-profit management, and engineering draw connections between mentoring research, theory, and practice in both domestic and global organizations. Rather than standing apart from the broader goals and objectives of these organizations, they demonstrate the ways mentoring for diversity actually drives innovation and change, talent management, organizational commitment, and organizational success.

Mentoring Diverse Leaders Creating Change for People, Processes, and Paradigms Press Reviews

I am particularly impressed by this book's attention to leveraging change at multiple levels of analysis - creating change for people, processes, and even the mentoring paradigm. The rich focus on a multiplicity of identities creates a sophisticated approach toward understanding mentoring dynamics. The deep dive into processes provides thoughtful approaches toward developing more diverse cohorts of organizational leaders. The willingness to question assumptions of hierarchy stimulates insightful discussion of the links between mentoring and social inequality. I strongly recommend this book to anyone seeking to understand the field of mentoring as well as the role of mentoring in leadership development. -Alison M. Konrad, Corus Entertainment Chair in Women in Management, Ivey Business School, Western University. This thought-provoking volume provides provocative insights and alternative paradigms that can spark important new dialogues between diversity and mentoring scholars and generate new research that explains the complex relationship between mentoring and diversity in the workplace. -Belle Rose Ragins, Professor of Human Resource Management, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, USA.
