AUGUST 2019 – DECEMBER 2019

Applications currently closed. Please come back in November to apply for our Spring 2020 program!

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 same opportunity!

How does it work?

  • You will be matched with a mentor based on both of your interests, geographical location, availability, etc.
  • A kickoff event will be held in August that will introduce all the mentor/mentee pairs. You will get a chance to meet your mentor and interact with the other WIT Girls participating in this year’s program.
  • You and your mentor will meet monthly (1-2 hours)
    • One meetings will be a group event with all the mentors and mentees at a specific location
      • Past group events include the Atlanta Science Festival and an escape room at Mission Escape Atlanta
    • Remaining meetings will be held one-on-one in person with your mentor
  • 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 December.
