Hite) examines mentoring patterns and opportunities among black female professionals and reports results reinforcing the need for increased availability of same-sex, same-race mentors in work environments. "Impatriation Via a Not-for-Profit Organization: Interpretive Study of the Cultural Adjustments of International Catholic Priests and Sisters to Living in the Upper Midwest United States and the Role of the Organization" (Jean R.

"Constructing Diverse Workplace Communities: Using an Educational Attrition Model to Retain Managerial Employees of Color and Women" (Shari L. Peterson) examines theoretical underpinnings of organizational models explaining employee turnover and an educational model explaining student attrition.
