Diversity challenges facing expatriate and immigrant mothers and how group mentoring can influence them: A case study of a mentoring scheme within a Christian organisation in the United Kingdom
N Awujo International Journal of Evidence Based Coaching and Mentoring 2016
The current upward trend in immigration in the UK suggests that organisations will increasingly encounter people facing diversity challenges relating to gender, culture and religion which could be influenced by mentoring. Using a case study approach, this study explores the influence of mentoring on Christian mothers from an African background in dealing with their challenges. The findings suggest that the participants experience both value conflict and role conflict challenges and that mentoring has a direct influence on how they deal with practical challenges and also an influence on their mind-set which indirectly influences their challenges in every area of life.
