Mentoring: Effective Programs Yield Successful Employees
By Robin Robinson

    Mention the word mentoring and you might get some eye rolls — the practice is not always viewed in a favorable light. All it takes is one bad mentoring experience to turn a person off the whole idea. And the risk of that is high, since there are extensive challenges from start to finish that can prevent an effective, rewarding outcome.
    “The most toxic thing that can happen to a mentoring program before it even starts is a previous bad mentoring experience,” says Joanne Kamens, Ph.D., executive director, Addgene, as well as founder of the Massachusetts chapter of the Association for Women in Science and director of mentoring for the Boston chapter of the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association. “Both mentors and mentees get nothing out of a poorly designed program, and will not be eager to participate in one again anytime soon.”
