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?

  • Once applications are in, you will receive information about all of the possible women you could be paired with. You will get a chance to provide us with your Top 3 choices for a mentor.
  • You will be matched with a mentor based on your feedback, as well as other factors – interests, geographical location, availability, etc.
  • A kickoff event will be held in July 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)
    • Some meetings will be a planned 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
    • Some 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, interview skills, etc.)
  • The program will conclude at a closing event in May.
