Much has been written on the concept of mentorship yet relatively little focuses on cross-gender mentorship (defined in this article as men mentoring or sponsoring women) and the benefits to the advancement of women.
This article addresses the question: To what extent can cross-gender mentorship enable female leaders to realize their full leadership potential and help their organizations achieve their objectives?
By integrating learning from personal experience, published research, and the application of Lewin’s force field model, I address ways for professionals of Organization Development and Change to transform organizations by realizing the full potential of their female (and male) leaders.
