Apply for our Mentorship Program
Applications open Fall 2018
We are proud to announce our 5th annual Women's Mentorship Program! The program provides students with the opportunity to be mentored by women from across professions. Students will learn more about the fields that they are interested in and will have the chance to build lasting relationships and connections with working professionals. As a mentee, you will be responsible for attending events with your mentor and not being afraid to ask questions. There are events throughout the program to help provide networking opportunities with mentors, ranging from on-campus meet-ups to on-site dinners.
Industries past mentors have come from include, but are not limited to, finance, fashion, tech, and consulting. We are always looking to expand our network, so if you have any interest in finding a mentor from an industry not listed above, or any questions about the program, please contact our Mentorship Chair, Amy Zhang.
