EXAMINING PERCEPTIONS OF MALE MENTOR EFFECTIVENESS BASED ON FEMALE PROTÉGÉ CAREER STAGE

Track: Human Resources Management

Keywords: Mentoring; Woman’s career; Career stages

The purpose of this paper is to examine male mentor’s effectiveness for a woman protégé through the lens of career stages and demonstrate that there is an optimum intersection between the age of a male mentor, and the career stages of a women protégé. First, the paper examines the career and life stages of a man and its influence on priorities as man gets older, and a shift in ability to be an effective mentor. Next, it investigates the differences in career stages of men versus women. Then, it addresses mentoring for women, and the challenges faced by women in finding mentors in an organization. Next, investigates the career stages of a woman protégé and their mentoring needs as function of their career stages. Finally, it ties in woman’s career stages, with the male mentor effectiveness as a function of his age. This paper helps women and the organizations understand the relationship between women’s career stages and the age of a man mentor. Data will be collected to test these hypotheses in the upcoming months, with preliminary analyses to be presented at the conference.
