Mentoring Program

Mississippi University for Women has joined with leading social media  platform and California-based Harvey Mudd College, sponsors of the first online mentoring program that encourages young women to consider careers in science, technology, engineering and math.

 

Titled Women in Technology Sharing Online (WitsOn), the six-week pilot program, which is free for students, started in October and includes universities such as the California Institute of Technology, Cornell, Harvard, Princeton, Stanford and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The non-credit program has a goal of connecting young women with those who have recognized accomplishments in STEM fields. Mentors will answer submitted questions online, with an emphasis on career demands, rewards and opportunities for success.
