For Mentees

Together we can utilize mentoring as an effective tool to help neutralize gender bias and build strong support networks and personal connections. As best we can, we will match mentors to mentees in the preferred area of interest of both parties.

This year’s program will run from July 2021 - March 2022. The program will include four virtual mentor/mentee meetings, as well as virtual “Mentee Match Mixers” every 6-8 weeks - providing plenty of opportunities to mingle and network with fellow participants!
