A study of women, career advancement, and mentoring in lumber related industries

by Sibal-Lang, Jacqueline, Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2011, 139 pages; 3465572


This research project examined how mentoring affected women in 3 lumber-related industries using a mixed methods approach. The research results included survey responses from 49 women and interviews with 10 women of various demographic and industry experiences. Although mentoring and career advancement have been researched by others, this project included 3 industries that have not been extensively researched; therefore, the information included in this project will add to previous research and enhance the abilities of women to advance their careers. Organizations will also benefit from the research data collected to enhance their abilities to attract, retain, and promote women into leadership positions.
