The Girls in Tech Mentorship Program focuses on the education and empowerment of women in technology and entrepreneurship. Offered for university and professional women in partnership with LEAD, the goal of the program is to identify and solve the obstacles keeping mentees from achieving their professional goals. As a result, the program is customized to each participant and her goals. Though, men are more than welcome to participate as mentors.
According to the American Society for Training and Development, 75% of executives say mentoring has been critical to their career development. The Girls in Tech Mentorship Program takes a three-tiered approach to create valuable interactions across demographics: building quality relationships, action-oriented projects, and confidence-building.
To kick off the year, the Girls in Tech Mentorship Program will be hosted in several locations. To participate as a mentor or a mentee, you must be in involved in one of the following chapters: Nigeria, London, Boston, MA, and Austin, TX.
Not located in one of our pilot chapters? Don’t worry! The Mentorship Program is offered at multiple chapters throughout the year. Please sign up for our newsletter for updates on when the Mentorship Program has open applications at your chapter.
