Organizations with a diverse workforce will have a leading edge in the New World economy. 'Mentoring and Diversity' illustrates the importance of mentoring as a proactive tool in diversity initiatives, and demonstrates how mentoring can be used to recruit, develop and retain a diverse and innovative workforce.

This book brings together new and innovative perspectives on diversity and mentoring relationships within a variety of international settings. 'Mentoring and Diversity' provides a unique blend of research and practice, and is an indispensable guide for any company that seeks to develop a more diverse workforce. It will serve as a fundamental text for practitioners interested in developing effective mentoring programmes and for researchers seeking to understand these critical and complex relationships.

Interviews, cases and qualitative data from a variety of international settings are used to support the models and theries developed in the text. These cases illustrate "diversity in action" in mentoring relationships, and provide guidance for developing effective mentoring programmes and diverse mentoring relationships in organizations.

The book is composed of four sections that reflect theory, research and practice:

* An overview of the theory and research on diversified mentoring relationships, followed by an applied model of diversity in mentoring relationships.
* Some empirically based and pragmatic observations of "best practices" that are used by diversified mentoring programmes in various international contexts.
* A collection of international case studies of diversity in both mentoring programmes and individual mentoring relationships. These cases illustrate the challenges and benefits associated with diversity in mentoring relationships. Organizational cases are drawn from such companies as Procter & Gamble, Volvo and World Bank. These cases provide practical guidance on how to develop effective mentoring programmes.
* An integrative analysis of some of the recurring themes in the case studies that are supported by existing research but also chart new ground for emerging reseach and theory.

Review:

"Mentoring and Diversity explores two critical topics relevant to organizations of today and tomorrow. The additional focus on developing diverse mentoring relationships within a global perspective makes this book unique and its contribution significant. The individual case studies add a practical dimension to the text that will be useful for students, scholars and practioners. The review and critique of research on diversified mentoring relationships is first-rate."

"Mentoring can serve as a great tool in gaining the business advantage especially when people interact from diverse backgrounds -- but only if the mentoring is done right. This excellent book teaches both the how and the why of mentoring. Belle Rose Ragins is America's leading academic expert on gender effects in mentoring, and David Clutterbuck, who consults to around the globe, is one of Britain's leading practitioners. Together they create the perfect trans-Atlantic marriage of theory and practice."

Faye Crosby, Professor of Psychology,University of California Santa Cruz, USA.

"This is a must-read book on diversified mentoring. It provides practical, real, cases of mentoring at two levels - the mentor-mentee pair and formal organizational programs in corporate, not-for-profit, and community sectors. Preceding the cases is the contemporary scholarly literature on mentoring and diversity, and following them is analysis drawing out the general principles to be learnt from programs that worked through to those that did not work. The organizational programs were at times designed specifically for diversified mentoring (e.g., race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, disability, disadvantage, offending, mental illness, and other forms of diversity). In other cases, the programs were designed simply to be mentoring programs that then informed practice and theory on diversified mentoring or they were designed as diversity programs to allow full use of all people again that resulted in insights specifically on diversified mentoring. The book traverses the challenge of whether formal mentoring programs do work, using the insights of the top scholar on diversified mentoring (Ragins) and the insights of the top practitioner (Clutterbuck), and gives general principles on how to increase program effectiveness as well as how to actually design effective formal mentoring programs. Its excellence is shown by being applicable on both sides of the Atlantic and most types of diversity."

Phyllis Tharenou, Professor of Organizational Behaviour, Department of Management, Monash University, Australia.

"Reconciling cultural values is at the core of successful organizations. Effective mentoring processes are crucial in helping people going beyond just observing differences. Mentoring helps you to integrate opposing values in many ways. I would highly recommend this excellent book on mentoring in diverse workplace"

Fons Trompenaars


"David Clutterback and Belle Rose Ragins achieve the rare accomplishment of delivering a book that speaks substantively and empathetically to multiple audiences. For those who study mentoring, Clutterback and Ragins effectively summarize what we know from the research on mentoring and diversity and then forge new ground into dimensions of difference that have received little attention. For those who develop and implement mentoring initiatives in organizations, the authors compile an impressive overview of best practices and pragmatic advice from companies at the forefront of integrating mentoring and diversity. For those who are personally motivated to learn about mentoring as a powerful tool for their career development, the authors include case studies and personal reflections that invite readers to authentically engage how the insights offered may hold real meaning in their career journeys. The international perspective undergirding this work provides a unique opportunity--the chance to traverse gaps in our understanding of the cultural nuances of mentoring and to fully appreciate the complexity and paradoxes inherent in explicating the phenomenon of mentoring across dimensions of diversity."
