The article describes how mentoring is a key element in achieving a diverse group of senior leaders in the U.S. Navy, in keeping with the Navy Diversity Strategy. Navy mentoring programs are said to have a great deal of variability. Formal mentoring programs are considered better than informal programs as they are characterized by a purposeful pairing of mentor and protege by a third party. A formalized Navy-wide mentorship program is capable of creating diverse senior leadership.
