Michael P. Maslanka on mentorship programs for women:

The article mentions that several companies, impatient with the promotion of women in their ranks and with female job turnover, are adopting formal sponsorship programs for women. Hmm. My questions: When does a too-focused sponsorship program for women start to become gender discrimination against men? When do the laudable goals of mentorship morph into the illegal ones of a quota? Stay tuned.

[Execupundit recommendation: Let the participation in mentoring programs be open to every employee. Why assume that the daughter of the lawyer needs more mentoring than the son of a mechanic?]
