Abstract

My previous paper in this journal (Gander 2010) discussed the dearth of female senior administrators in the UK higher education (HE) sector and offered some explanation using the theoretical concepts of gendered organisations and individuals’ practising of gender. This paper moves on from there to report on a small scale qualitative research project looking at the effect of a career mentoring scheme on women administrators in an English HEI. Much of what I report on below will of course be applicable to men as well as women and indeed much of the literature suggests that the quantitative outcome of career mentoring is more significant for men than for women
