Retaining and Reclaiming Ourselves: Reflections on a Peer Mentoring Group Experience for New African American Women Professors
Packer-Williams, Catherine L.; Evans, Kathy M.
Perspectives in Peer Programs, v23 n1 p9-23 Spr-Sum 2011
This article reports on the results of a qualitative study of new African American female professors' participation in a peer mentoring group. Three key themes that emerged from the data included peer mentoring as a vehicle to process and cope effectively with microaggressions, increase positive self-identity and self-efficacy as a scholar, and recognizing and combating internalized oppression and stereotypes. Implications for future African American female faculty peer programs are discussed.
