Clearly, companies gain more by having women in leadership roles and greater gender diversity overall. To help get more women into such roles, organizations often turn to mentoring. Mentoring can provide emerging leaders with support from mentors who are experienced leaders and experts in their fields. It can also give mentees an opportunity to learn from peers and leaders in other areas of the company.
Food services and facilities management company Sodexo is a prime example of a company using mentoring to increase the number of women in leadership roles.
