Advancing Women in IT Mentoring Platform

Note: we have recently had a large number of requests for mentors so there is currently a waiting list for a mentor assignment.  We will assign a mentor to you as soon as one becomes available.

Mentorship Commitment: The mentorship program is structured to last 2 - 5 sessions as needed. The mentor and mentee will develop a meeting schedule that is respectful to the needs of both parties. 

  • It is the expectation that the mentee will respond to the mentor's introductory email within one week of receiving that email.
  • It is the expectation that the mentee will be available for at least one hour of mentoring a month.

Please fill out the following information.  It will be used to match mentors and mentees.
