The Next Generation: A Handbook for Mentoring Future Union Leaders

The Next Generation aims to help unions and other organizations incorporate
leadership development into their regular scheme of work. The Institute for
Women’s Policy Research has compiled a basic, yet detailed, how-to manual
for setting up and executing an effective mentoring program. Replete with “best
practice” examples from mentoring programs that actually work, this manual can
be used to begin a mentoring program from scratch or shore up one that’s already in
place. Using the manual’s tools for two-way communication and appended forms
for measuring mentoring progress will ensure that efforts to develop new leadership
are sustained, even as individual leaders themselves move on. As the handbook
points out, a mentoring program is really an ongoing internal communications
program.
