Balanced research and practice
Developing countries like Mexico need to provide educational tools to promote talented youth, however, not much is known about Mexican practitioner’s and researchers evaluation of those tools. This poster will assess the importance of the mentioned tools for Mexican practitioners by differentiating between three aspects 1) if mentoring is considered the best tool for the inclusion of young people in the labor market 2) if this tool is considered one of the most challenging and finally 3) if this type of educational resources is considered less accessible to women. By analyzing the ranking of preference for programs in talent development, we can explore experts opinions about different types interventions (Enrichment, Mentoring Pull-Out or Other Specialized Programs, Grouping or other). These findings will serve as a starting point for understanding the acceptance of mentoring as a tool to enhance talent development in Mexico.
