Abstract: Female doctoral students in educational leadership programs receive fewer mentoring opportunities as compared to their male counterparts. This chapter presents descriptive statistical results from a survey examining gender differences in how educational leadership doctoral students define mentoring. The findings suggest the need for a broader investigation on discourses and varied definitions related to mentoring women in educational leadership.
