Mentorship of Diverse Populations
Consider the following quote, “Recognition of the value of understanding how bias and stereotypes affect working relationships, educating leaders on how men and women may lead differently, and educating men on how to mentor women may serve to increase performance and improve the integration of women into military units” (Segal,et al., 2016, p. 38).
Now respond to the following:
As military leaders, how do you foster an environment of inclusion which values mentorship of diverse populations to include women, minorities, LGBTQ, and other underrepresented populations?
Discuss how you propose addressing this type of mentorship within your units. How does your approach or lack thereof have long lasting implications for unit cohesion and readiness?
In response to your fellow classmates, please ensure that you consider the challenges they may face and offer potential solutions for navigating such challenges.
