B-WEST Mentorship Program.
Taylor, Jennice, Comp.; Benedetti, Marie L., Ed.
This program guide is intended for use by mentors of women who have completed the preemployment training component of the B-WEST (Building Workers Entering Skilled Trades) project and who are now entering a trade or technical occupation. The first section contains a definition of mentoring and mentor, protegee, and trainer profiles. Sections 2-6 cover the art of listening, trade issues, problem solving, self-care, and sexual harassment. Among the topics examined are the following: roadblocks to effective communication, reflective listening, enabling versus empowering, confidentiality, physical conditioning, attending to personal needs, job site safety, apprenticeships, reactions to/effects of conflict, unresolved conflict, ways of handling and/or minimizing conflict, self-esteem, assertive listening, basic human rights/belief systems, violence and inequality in our culture, wife assault, workplace violence, child abuse, rape and sexual assault, and personal consequences of sexual harassment. The section on sexual harassment contains a substantial bibliography on resource agencies and materials. Section 7 lists types of resource agencies/services available and includes basic information on food, shelter, clothing, health, and play resources. Provided along with the program guide are a mentor career journal and a protegee career journal (each separately bound) that include information on the purpose of a career journal and questions to ask mentors.
