Women became a permanent part of the Armed Forces in 1948. Over the
last ten years, the percentage of women in the United States Air
Force (USAF) has increased over 38 percent. This steady increase in
female USAF professionals has been accompanied by significant
increases in the percentages of women in the senior officer and
enlisted ranks. USAF women are progressing well professionally,
even when compared to their civilian counterparts. This paper uses
independent research and survey inputs from the 1997 Air Command
and Staff College (ACSC) class to discuss mentoring in the USAF.
The survey indicates that mentoring plays a key role in the
development of successful USAF professionals. This paper examines
mentoring from a developmental perspective. First, it explores the
background and history of mentoring in order to establish a common
foundation for understanding. Next, this paper examines the
positive affects of mentoring on the mentee, the mentor, and the
organization. Third, this paper discusses the dynamics of mentoring
relationships-the nuts and bolts of how mentoring relationships
work. Finally, this paper takes a look at different types of
mentoring initiatives in today's USAF.
