Editorial Reviews


This book offers a rich mix of articles that explore mentoring dilemmas within diverse work contexts: conceptual or theoretical pieces, reviews of the literature, discussions of specific studies, and firsthand accounts....the book does an excellent job of stimulating thought and developing ideas....Each chapter is concise and interesting. The editors did an excellent job of ensuring consistency of format so that several voices could be heard and none would receive more exposure than the others.

Those interested in mentoring and/or developmental relationships in organizations should buy this book, as should those interested in diversity and how developmental experiences vary for dissimilar groups.
Administrative Science Quarterly

All of us need mentors at work as well as at school. This thoughtful and insightful book represents one of the first serious efforts to inquire into the conditions that promote mentoring for everyone.
Thomas Gerety
President, Amherst College

When senior people in an organization help develop the abilities and talents of junior people, everyone benefits. To foster and manage developmental relationships, organizations that employ and serve diverse populations, must know about the special challenges and the special opportunities that attend diversity. This outstanding volume presents the latest research on mentoring and sponsorship in multicultural organizations and is likely to set for the next decade the course of thinking about the issues among those of us who work in business schools.

The business maxim 'grow or die' could be recast as 'mentor or die.' Mentoring your firm's future leadership is a critical success factor for any company with growth plans. This book provides managers with insights on how to make mentoring work in our increasingly diverse organizations.
Paul Gudonis
President, GTE Internetworking Services

Few doubt the importance of developmental relationships to career advancement. But how do these relationships work within the context of the multicultural organization? Mentoring Dilemmas: Developmental Relationships Within Multicultural Organizations provides a comprehensive treatment of this issue from three perspectives: theoretical, empirical, and experimental....This book may provide a valuable resource for those interested in conducting research related to developmental relationships within a diverse workforce. It also illustrates the need to examine developmental relationships from a broader perspective.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book includes chapters by several authors exploring the connection between mentoring in organizations and diversity. Theory, research and practical experiences are revealed in this timely discussion of two key issues facing organizations today and in the future. Clearly the editors have stumbled upon a critical aspect of "best practice" within organizations - the role of diversified developmental relationships.
