Based on interview with 200 career women at all levels in a variety of organizations (including NYNEX, Kodak, J.P. Morgan, and Corning), this work seeks to show women how they can successfully initiate and maintain mentoring relationships with more senior women. Topics covered include how to prepare to be someone's protege, how to identify the right mentor, getting beyond the fears and stereotypes that keep women apart, how to anticipate and avoid challenges to the mentoring relationship, and more. The book offers concrete strategies, rather than just theory, for developing a powerful woman-to-woman learning connection.

Carolyn S. Duff (Fort Collins, CO) is president of WomenWorks, Inc., a consulting and training business focused on workplace gender issues. She is a frequent workshop leader and speaker and has discussed women-in-the-workplace issues on Fox Morning News, CNN, and numerous radio talk shows.From Library Journal:
Now that women have achieved a presence in the work force, Duff argues, they are turning to each other for career guidance and support. It's not that men cannot be good mentors, but, as Duff notes, "men have not shared the female experience." Duff, president of a consulting business that focuses on workplace gender issues (and author, with Barbara Cohen, of When Women Work Together: Using Our Strengths To Overcome Our Challenges), has drawn on the experiences of 200 career women to create a guide to female mentoring. She presents tips on how to connect with a mentor, how to choose the right person in an organization, and how to nurture the mentoring relationship. Additionally, Duff offers focused worksheet exercises, Internet sites, and an extensive bibliography. Worthy reading even though much has been written about this subject; recommended for most career collections.ABellinda Wise, Nassau Community Coll. Lib., Garden City, NY
