Business Mentoring Matters

Mentoring Benefits: Workplace Diversity

Posted on Wed, Jul, 29, 2009

There is a strong business case for workforce diversity and diversity initiatives, such as cross-cultural mentoring programs. Baby boomers are aging and remaining in the workforce longer, companies are conducting more business globally, women are playing a stronger role in executive teams, and a growing number of minorities are entering the U.S. workforce.

Today’s workforce is evolving, and the best companies are responding to it by offering and fostering diversity initiatives to expand understanding and encourage collaboration across different demographics. That’s good news, but there’s still a big problem – most diversity initiatives don’t go far enough. And companies that offer insufficient programs are wasting time and money.

Mentoring has proven to be a highly effective technique to reduce the barriers to equal opportunity. Management Mentors offers a unique program that helps companies establish mentoring in the context of their diversity initiatives.
