In this unprecedented handbook, the team of coeditors and contributors show the immeasurable impact of women helping women via a method that has become a "hot-button" topic nationwide--mentoring.

In "A Handbook for Women Mentors: Transcending Barriers of Stereotype, Race, and Ethnicity," an expert author team--all experienced mentors--provide specific strategies for women mentoring women, showing how mentoring relationships benefit individuals, women as a group, and the nation as a whole. Discussions include ongoing challenges--and potential pitfalls--for women confronting obstacles in their education and professional careers, with special attention to minority women--whether it is a mother of four leading a university department, an African American woman working in engineering, or a Latina female advancing in the field of math.
