The purpose of this study was to understand the experiences of diverse women in the academy regarding their mentoring experiences during their doctoral studies. Ethnically diverse women with five or fewer years in the academy were chosen for participation in the study. The research question was "what impact does the race of the mentor have on doctoral student choice to pursue the professoriate?" For the study, five female faculty members participated in individual, in-depth online interviews via instant messenger. Each interview transcript was saved, thematically analyzed, and revealed four predominant themes including (a) the relationship, (b) a holistic process, (c) qualities of a mentor, and (d) transitional issues. Findings of the study revealed that participants found the mentoring relationship or connection as more important than other factors such as race or gender in choosing participation. The mentor characteristics that had an impact their choice of mentor were leadership abilities, strength, and being supportive.
