Alternate Collegial Model-Based Forms of Networking among Women or Networking in the Nineties for the Professional Woman.
Pancrazio, Sally Bulkley
The collegial networking model, advanced for women as an alternative to the traditional "old boy" male network in the late 1970s and early 1980s, is described in this paper. Based on affiliation rather than competitiveness, the collegial model is applicable to professional women in the 1990s, with the following added recommendations: (1) recognizing the instability of one's position; (2) learning techniques for labor management; (3) promoting collaboration between younger and more experienced colleagues; (4) integrating women's social support groups into professional meetings; and (5) accepting of criticism. A conclusion is that networking remains a viable strategy for women for obtaining job-enhancing information, making professional contacts, and exchanging social support. (6 references) (LMI)
