The Women in Science and Engineering Roundtable (WISER), an initiative in the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women, promotes interest and retention in STEM fields. To do so, WISER builds student skills and self-efficacy in STEM, cultivates a sense of community and belonging, and provides opportunities to learn from STEM role models.
WISER is recruiting participants for its Professional Mentoring Program. This program connects Case Western Reserve University undergraduate and graduate students with STEM professionals in their community to foster a sense of community in STEM fields, help with career path planning, and provide professional role models. Mentors are paired with mentees based on career interests, educational focus and mentoring relationship expectations.
In the program, participants:
- Attend two Professional Mentor Meetup events (one in the fall semester and one in the spring semester);
- Check in regularly with their partner (via in-person meetings, phone calls or digital check-ins);
- Participate in the program evaluation; and
- Attend the WISER Banquet at the end of the spring semester.
