What is a TechWomen Professional Mentor?

A Professional Mentor is a TechWomen volunteer who works closely with an Emerging Leader to help her grow and thrive professionally. The Mentor coaches the participant on a mutually beneficial project at the Mentor’s company during the month of October 2013 and provides daily guidance and feedback on her work. Professional Mentors will be matched with one Emerging Leader.

TechWomen Mentors have the opportunity to attend many TechWomen events in the San Francisco Bay Area, travel to Washington, D.C. in November 2013 to visit the U.S. Department of State, and travel to the Middle East and Africa for the TechWomen delegation trips in winter 2014.

Are there mentoring opportunities if I don’t work in STEM or cannot host a participant at my company’s site?

Yes! TechWomen Emerging Leaders are also matched with a Cultural Mentor. To learn more about becoming a Cultural Mentor, please visit our website. The TechWomen Cultural Mentor Application will open on June 1, 2013.
