Online Submission, Paper presented at the International Research Conference in the Americas of the Academy of Human Resource Development (Indianapolis, IN, Feb 28-Mar 4, 2007)
Mentoring is a successful development tool used in HRD; however, research on mentoring between genders, ethnicities, and cultures is limited. As HRD continues to move forward in this global society, understanding people's differences will provide for more successful human development, particularly in the area of mentoring. This paper focuses on the current literature on mentoring in this area, to inform HRD practice and to recommend further research in the area of diversity and mentoring.
