Global Co-Mentoring Networks in Higher Education : Politics, Policies, and Practices Hardback
Edited by B. Gloria Guzman Johannessen
This book offers faculty and leaders of academic institutions insights on issues surrounding faculty mentoring and how national and international co-mentoring networks can contribute to the success of their members.
These networks help female faculty and faculty from traditionally marginalized groups to engage positively with their careers, to create supportive systems that help them navigate the often-difficult path of academia, and gain success in their research work and publications.
The book discusses the international women's network C-Y-F, which works across national and international boundaries, embracing women from five continents, diverse linguistic, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds, different generations and academic ranks.
Contributions by authors from traditionally marginalized groups add to a better understanding of mentoring and co-mentoring from a variety of perspectives.
