Women's and men's networks in the workplace : attitudes, behaviours and outcomes

McBain, Laura-Lynne January 1990 (has links)
Homosociality, the societal norm toward same-gender social bonding, has been hypothesized as an important explanatory variable in the maintenance of occupational segregation by gender and the low status of women in traditionally male-dominated occupations (Lipman-Blumen, 1976; Reagan & Blaxall, 1976). In this investigation of homosociality in the workplace, 257 women and 197 men employed in managerial, supervisory, professional, and technical positions in seven organizations completed a questionnaire regarding their career development and interpersonal relationships in their current organization. Predictions derived from homosociality theory and the literature and research on mentoring, friendship, and organizational networks were tested. Of the 17 hypotheses associated with five research questions, 8 were fully or partially supported, 6 were not supported, and 3 could not be tested because factor analysis did not support the variable of interest (lifetime attachment). Alpha was apportioned using the Bonferroni inequality procedure; probability levels ranged from .025 to .0025 depending on the number of significance tests conducted for each question. Analysis of variance (Gender x Gender Composition of Network) and simple main effects analysis performed on mentoring and relationship provisions (intimacy, similarity, defiance of convention, respect for differences) scores indicated one significant main effect for gender: women's same-gender networks provided more intimacy than men's. Significant main effects for gender composition were: (a) men's same-gender networks provided more mentoring than their cross-gender networks; (b) women's same-gender networks provided more intimacy than their cross-gender networks; and (c) for both genders, same-gender networks provided higher levels of similarity and defiance of convention than cross-gender networks. Correlational analyses indicated: (a) for women, but generally not for men, homosocial attitudes were significantly related to the size and activities of same- and cross-gender networks; (b) for both genders, same- and cross-gender mentoring and primarily same-gender relationship provisions were positively and significantly related to career- and job-related outcomes. Homosociality was evident in attitudes, network activities, and outcomes. Results also indicated signs of organizational gender integration. Implications for theory and counselling, and suggestions for future research, are discussed. / Education, Faculty of / Educational and Counselling Psychology, and Special Education (ECPS), Department of / Graduate

Facilitators, barriers, benefits and limitations of a nurse mentoring relationship

Johnson, Hattie L. 24 October 2005 (has links)
This qualitative study explores the facilitators, barriers, benefits, and limitations of the mentoring relationship between recently graduated nurse mentees and their mentors. These nurses participated in a seven-week New Nurse Internship Mentoring Program in an urban hospital. The study sample consisted of twenty inexperienced and nineteen experienced registered nurses who represented diverse racial, cultural, and clinical nursing specialties. Focus group and open-ended personal interviews were used to gather data. Findings were reported by open coding, domain and thematic analyses. Major findings of the study were related to four research questions accompanied by important information regarding the mentoring experience in general. Four research questions which guided the study included: (1) What are the facilitators of the mentoring relationship? (2) What are the barriers to the mentoring relationship? (3) What are the benefits of the mentoring relationship? and (4) What are the limitations of the mentoring relationship? Findings suggested the relationships were viewed as good to excellent. The transition from student nurse to graduate nurse was seen as both difficult and smooth. Mentoring was defined in relation to mentor characteristics. positive mentor traits were identified as patient, supportive and knowledgeable. Facilitators to mentoring were identified as factors which were helpful including mentor and mentee personality characteristics and institutional factors. Barriers to mentoring were identified based on debilitating factors, personality conflicts, scheduling conflicts, mentor dislike for the job and mentor lack of knowledge. Means to overcoming barriers included matching team schedules I rewarding the mentor and increasing mentor training. Benefits were defined as advantages to the mentor, mentee, institution and profession. Respondents were reluctant to identify limitations. Findings verified that a nurse mentoring relationship is an important factor in assisting the transition of graduates into the nursing profession. Findings offer implications for nursing education and professionals responsible for providing a work environment supportive to developing clinically competent nurses. / Ph. D.

A fresh start : an evaluation of the impact of mentoring programs on young people

Washington, Dione 06 1900 (has links)
The author presents original research findings on the subject of the impact of a youth mentoring program, Fresh Start, on a group of at-risk adolescents in the United States. The article opens with an introduction and overview of the subject of youth mentoring, and proceeds to a review of the literature that describes types of mentoring and the varied outcomes mentoring programs have been documented to have on target populations. The literature also explains the concept of at-risk adolescents, and explains how and why mentoring programs are believed to be effective interventions for working with this population. The author then presents the methodology, research design, and procedures that were used for the study, and identifies the organization that served as the subject of the study. The researcher explained that data were collected from three distinct participant groups: students, teachers, and parents. The researcher documents the data collection and analysis techniques, and reports the results. Based on the study conducted, the researcher concluded that the Fresh Start mentoring intervention influenced statistically significant positive outcomes for participants with respect to the at-risk students’ behaviour and academic performance. Taking this conclusion into consideration, the researcher reflected upon the components of a mentoring program that are most likely to predict academic and social success for students who have been deemed at-risk, and offered recommendations for future research and program development. / Sociology / D.

The effect of mentoring as a strategy for teacher professional development in Mopani District, Limpopo Province.

Maake, Mmamodimo 20 September 2019 (has links)
DEd (Educational Management) / Department of Educational Management / The aim of this study was to explore the effect of mentoring as a strategy for teacher professional development. The study was underpinned by Vygotsky, Piaget and Bandura socio-cultural theories. The study is anchored on the interpretivist or constructivist paradigm to enable the investigator to deconstruct the realities of the experiences of practicing teachers during the mentoring process. The qualitative research approach was adopted in the study. The population comprised all teachers at six (6) selected high schools in the Thabina Cluster schools. Purposeful sampling method was employed to select 12 teachers that participated in the study. Qualitative data was generated through face-to-face interviews, observations and document analysis. Data was analysed thematically. The study established that teachers value and acknowledge the importance of mentoring as a strategy for teacher professional development. There is also a need for mentoring to be conducted with new teachers to offer them opportunities for professional growth. The study recommendations are that the Department of Education should develop and regularly implement mentoring programmes to enhance the competency of teachers. / NRF
