2020 Girls in Tech Boston Mentorship Program for Young ChangeMakers in the Greater Boston Area
Deadline: February 14, 2020.
The Girls in Tech Mentorship Program takes a three-tiered approach to create valuable interactions across demographics: building quality relationships, action-oriented conversations, and confidence-building. Offered for university and professional women of all ages and levels in their careers, 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!)
The Girls in Tech Mentorship Program is open to anyone in the Greater Boston area interested in building their professional network, developing meaningful connections to last their career, and enhancing their skills and knowledge. This program is designed to be action-oriented, so it’s important to enter with a clear goal in mind. Both mentors and mentees are expected to:
- Be driven and have lots of passion
- Attend 1 in-person meeting a month and 1 weekly phone call from March – May 2020
- Review the Mentorship Program curriculum guide after selection and enrollment
- Be prepared at each meeting with a list of action items to discuss, all with the intention of solving the problem and staying focused on the task at hand
The benefits of mentorship are too many to count. Finding a great mentor-mentee relationship can help you build your professional network, increase your self-confidence, enhance your skills and knowledge, meet fascinating business influencers, build meaningful connections to last your career, write a more effective resume, and better define your career goals and options.
