Most of the past studies conducted on mentoring are not specific to the experiences of women. More and more research is starting to focus on women in particular, and this allows us to better understand the importance of mentoring on the career development of women. Women often struggle with finding and leveraging mentors. A woman-to-woman mentoring relationship is one of the most valuable and impactful resource a woman can have in terms of her career growth and success. This paper will review the benefits of mentoring women, what women seek in mentoring relationships and the key components of effective mentorship, why woman-to-woman mentorship pairs are so necessary, and the barriers that hinder women from seeking out and developing mentoring relationships.
