The purpose of this phenomenological research was to review the literature and investigate the role of mentoring in work-life integration. The study also raised further awareness about women’s identity, relational style, drive, motivation and adaptive styles. The findings indicate that mentoring and mentoring relationships are meaningful and effective when implemented. The study allowed for a greater insight into who the chosen mentors were and what they did professionally. Additionally, the narrative life-course framework was utilized for interpretation of results.
