The Ladies in Tech Mentoring Program is run by officers in Women who Compute and Society of Women Engineers.
Our mission is to connect women within STEM Majors at University of Texas Dallas and help students feel connected to the university, their major, and other women engineers. We will be planning workshops and events that will develop students professionally, socially, and mentally: we want happy, healthy, successful engineering students who know their dream job and how to go get it!
Ladies in Tech will be having regular workshops/socials for our mentors/mentee pairs the multiple times per month. Our professional development events will covers tips and tricks in multiple fields relating to engineering and CS. Our socials will be fun bonding events for members to meet eachother.
Mentors have been selected for the 2021-2022 school year!
As a woman in STEM, it can often be difficult to find guidance and support in the tech community. Our freshman mentees have expressed their eagerness to connect and learn from our mentors. We hope our mentors are eager to share their experiences with incoming freshmen, helping their mentees persevere through the hardships and find a way to achieve their goals. Mentors will be able to develop friendships with their mentees, gain confidence in themselves, and grow as leaders. Our organization aims to provide mentors the opportunity to develop in public speaking, technical skills, and leadership through our professional development events, LIT Creations project competition, and social events.
