WeTech's Mentoring Program employs mentoring as a tool to address the drop-off of women who study STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) at university but then do not stay or progress in technical careers. Through this new virtual community, IIE connects leading women and men, working for WeTech partners, with university women in India as they transition from their studies into the tech workforce.
WeTech’s Mentoring Program includes:
- 91 mentors from Qualcomm and Goldman Sachs volunteering their time and expertise
- 91 mentees pursuing degrees in Computer Science, Engineering, Math and Technology at universities throughout India
- 1 to 1 matches based customized compatibility factors and career goals
- A unique 6 month program complete with resources in action planning, networking, career planning and interpersonal skills
