AbstractAbstract: The South African government has assertively promoted skills development initiatives, through vehicles like Employment Equity (EE), Affirmative Action (AA), Skills Development Levy (SDL), Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (BBBEE). The programmes were promoted by the post-apartheid South African government as a way to re-dress past injustices. In the management of diversity, mentoring can be used as a tool to redress the injustices of the past. To pursue mentoring as a form of skills development, particular attention was given to an SME (Small Medium Enterprise) organisation in the IT/Service sector in Tshwane, in the Gauteng province. To gain deeper insight, participants who took part in the programme were interviewed. Wide ranging global literature was reviewed. However, locally, in South Africa, there was a general dearth of information on the subject.
