What is WIT Mentors?

WIT Mentors is a WIT Girls program that will create a one-on-one mentoring relationship between you and a positive female role model in the STEAM community.

 

Why WIT Mentors?

Most of us can look back at our earlier years and identify at least one female role model who directly impacted the course of our lives – we want you to have the opportunity to be that role model for one of our WIT Girls!

How does it work?

  • Mentor/Mentee’s are matched based on both of your interests, geographical location, availability, etc.
  • kickoff event will be held in February that will introduce all the mentor/mentee pairs. You will get a chance to meet your mentee and interact with the other women participating in this year’s program.
  • You and your mentee will meet monthly (1-2 hours)
    • One meeting will be a group event with all the mentors and mentees at a specific location
      • Past group events include the Atlanta Science Festival and Mastermind Escape Games
    • Remaining meetings will be held one-on-one in person with your mentee
  • Each month will have a different theme to focus the mentoring session (e.g. networking, goal setting, etc.)
  • The program will conclude at a closing event in May.
