Perceptions of Mentor Roles in Cross-Gender Mentoring Relationships.
Ragins, Belle Rose; McFarlin, Dean B.
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v37 n3 p321-39 Dec 1990
Data from 181 proteges were used to compare perceptions of mentoring in cross- and same-gender relationships. Mentor role perceptions were not influenced by mentor or protege gender. Cross-gender proteges were less likely to engage in social activities with mentors, and female proteges with female mentors were more likely to identify mentors as role models. (SK)
