This year, in partnership with MESA, the HSI-STEM offered its first Females in STEM mentorship program. From a pool of applicants, six students were selected to participate in this event. The students were paired with 6 professional women in the industry whose work aligned with each student’s course work and interest. Throughout the academic year, the mentors and mentees will work closely with each other to strengthen the student’s professional development. The added bonus of this program will be the student’s chance at accompanying their mentor at their place of work, and meeting other professionals as well.
The kickoff meeting took place in September, with the second face to face meeting is scheduled for December.
We are proud to be extending this opportunity to our students, and we look forward to seeing them grow in their careers!
