As we emerge from what was a #MeToo explosion, we've taken the opportunity to delve into the delicate interpersonal relationships of the workplace, how this has impacted cross-gender mentoring, and more specifically the mentoring of women.
Mentoring in a post #MeToo world
Our latest research report, Cross-Gender Relations in a Post #MeToo World, surveyed more than 600 respondents predominantly from Australia and highlights some alarming findings, as the potential for a further divide between the genders becomes apparent.
Key learnings suggest that:
- far too many women feel like they are imposters in the workplace and that they don't belong;
- fair pay and family balance have an impact on men too;
- being in the "boys club" doesn't necessarily mean you can, or will, talk about it; and
- we potentially overestimate our abilities when it comes to being a masterful mentor – or even a good one.
Download our report to discover in detail the fears and barriers men and women face, and learn practical tips on how to foster effective mentoring between the genders, particularly from a woman's perspective.
Introducing a new professional mentoring program plan: The Art of Mentoring Women
On the back of compounding research, and as part of our commitment to nurturing gender diversity, this month we will be launching a new mentoring program plan, The Art of Mentoring Women, specifically targeting how to support and mentor women in the workplace.
More than ever before in the practice of mentoring, there is a greater need to ensure that tools, training and processes are in place to enable all genders to create safe and collaborative workspaces.
