“An information-packed book for women who are or want to be corporate leaders.”
- Dianne Ramster, Stepping Ahead: Mentoring News & Reviews for Entrepreneurial Women, Spring 2000, Ontario, Canada

“Your book provides a very compelling perspective on leadership development and diversity in the workplace, as well as valuable insight for women on understanding their leadership potential.”
- Jack Greenberg, President & CEO, McDonald's Corporation

“Many of our students expressed to me how pleased they were that The Womentor Guide provided a focused, contemporary vantage point to analyze women's leadership issues. Compared to texts that we had used in previous seminars, we found that student reactions to your text were overwhelmingly positive. Faculty members commented that they found that they were easily able to integrate issues raised in the textbook into smaller group discussions. They found the leadership assessment evaluations in The Womentor Guide to be a useful tool for examining individual leadership styles and fostering discussion of ways that women can excel in specific institutional cultures.”
- Ruth Urry, Program Supervisor for “Women as Leaders '99,” The Washington Center

The Womentor Guide is a book full of extraordinary wisdom presented in a refreshing, straightforward manner. I truly believe that it is a gem of a resource that women especially need to read and reread. I've given copies to my daughters, women friends, and many other colleagues who are trying to implement successful mentoring programs.”
- Sharon Parker, former President, The American Institute for Managing Diversity

“I would highly recommend this...It made me realize that anyone can be a leader and that leadership is a dynamic process that changes with your business environment. The motivational examples of how various women developed leadership skills is particularly informative. Traits of charismatic leaders...served as a reminder that leadership is neither feminine nor masculine. The book was also a needed refresher course on managing my own organization.”
- Mary Katherine Dean, named one of Worth Magazine's “100 Best Financial Advisors”

“In this fascinating and instructive book, Paula Washington and Diane Scott strike out in a refreshing new direction. While aware of the debates over the extent and significance of sexual differences, they boldly argue...women are just as likely as men to function successfully as leaders...frequently in flagrant defiance of sexual stereotypes. An inspiration to women to cultivate and enjoy their own strength, The Womentor Guide offers women an engaging blend of wisdom and practical advice. Above all, it extends an encouraging invitation to women to cultivate their talents, draw upon their strengths, and take their rightful place in the corridors of power.”
- Dr. Elizabeth Fox-Genovese, Eleonore Raoul Professor of the Humanities and Professor of History, Emory University
