Role of HRD in Women's Career Development. Symposium 17. [AHRD Conference, 2001].
This symposium on the role of human resource development (HRD) in women's career development consists of three presentations. "Career Goals of Non-Managerial Women: An Adaptive Approach" (Linda M. Hite, Kimberly S. McDonald) reports an exploratory study that produced data from which these four themes emerged--adaptive goals, family influence, security needs, and organizational support--that suggest non-managerial women take an adaptive approach regarding their careers. "The Career Life Cycle and Mentoring: The Opportunity for Reflection as an Outcome for Mentors" (Ellen J. Mullen et al.) describes results that suggest that, among professional educators, mentoring was a vehicle for mentor reflection, particularly among women, and demonstrating organizational skills and promoting independent thinking were predictive of the opportunity to reflect. "Functions Performed by Mentors That Assist in the Career Development of Women Managers" (Rose Mary Wentling) focuses on a study that investigated whether women managers had mentors and how the mentors assisted them in their career development. It reports that being an influential leader and willing to share knowledge and expertise were the characteristics the women managers most often wanted in their mentors and that mentors were the most influential in the women managers' career development. All three papers include substantial bibliographies. (YLB)
