AbstractThis study used both a questionnaire and personal interviews to gather information on women's networking organizations. The information was compared to a study of similar organizations in the United Kingdom. The questionnaires did not support or disprove the results of the previous study. Personal interviews of 5 networking organization leaders supported some of the conclusions of the United Kingdom study. Organizations that limited their membership to members of a particular group or profession and focused on training were more apolitical. Those organizations with more inclusive membership policies were found to be more likely to promote change to benefit women in general. Counselors who advise women clients to seek support in networking organizations should be aware that not all organizations promote goals that are in the best interest of women as a class.
