A Relational Approach to Mentoring Women Doctoral Students
Gammel, Jo Ann; Rutstein-Riley, Amy
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n147 p27-35 Fall 2016
Our study examines the relationships of six dyads of women advisors and advisees in one doctoral program to understand power, context, and personal transformation. We found that mentoring is context specific and power dynamics range from equitable to hierarchical. This article explores the connection between relational cultural theory and transformative learning.
