Researchers who have studied mentoring have defined it as the act of teaching, guiding, helping, counseling, and inspiring mentees. The concept of mentoring dates back to around 1200 B.C. Although the concept of mentoring has existed for centuries, academic research of mentoring did not begin until late 1970. Career mobility, which had been associated with mentoring, was and still is considered to be an individual's ability to capitalize on career advancement through more responsibility, skill development, and mentoring. However, there is a problem: there is a relatively low number of African American women in management positions working in U.S. healthcare. The purpose of this study was to compare the relationship of career mobility of African American women in the U.S. healthcare industry to mentoring guidance, mentoring help, and mentoring encouragement. This study also explored and presented findings about the perceptions of mentoring and career mobility that African American women may have towards leadership opportunities in the U.S. healthcare industry. It was expected that this study would show that there were significant determining factors related to mentoring and career mobility of African American women in the U.S. healthcare industry. Based on the purpose and problem statement, three research questions were developed: (a) Is there a positive correlation between the level of career mobility and the level of mentoring guidance? (b) Is there a positive correlation between the level of career mobility and the level of mentoring help? and (c) Is there a positive correlation between the level of career mobility and the level of mentoring encouragement? It was expected that the answers to the research questions would provide a meaningful theory-based framework that could benefit healthcare organizations that employ African American women.
