IN THIS SUMMARY

Athena Rising by W. Brad Johnson and David Smith is a book written for men, by men, about mentoring women. Although men are often in a position to mentor women, they may be unwilling or afraid to do so. As a result, they are failing to take advantage of the valuable untapped talent of more than half of the population. Part I of the book provides an overview of how men can better understand gender dynamics in the workplace from a female perspective, while Part II provides essential principles of cross-gender mentoring. Male mentors who understand the reality of gender-based discrimination in the workplace and the pressures women face in seeking to advance their careers can both champion women’s success and help them make a difference in their organizations.
