Mentoring Program

Help us reach your true potential

The STEM Sisters Mentoring Program provides International female student mentees with the opportunity to increase their understanding of the industry sector, strengthen their skills to be successful within any of STEM industries and extend their professional network.

After a successful mentoring program for female international students and professional migrants in STEM in 2020. We hope to increase mentor-mentee engagement and developed an online web platform to revamp our Mentoring program for 2021.

We provide our community with the opportunity to start or advance their careers by leveraging the experiences and resources of one of our over 50 STEM big sister mentors, who are accomplished women of colour with experience across several STEM fields.

As part of our inaugural mentoring program, students from 10 universities participated in a 12-week program filled with one to one mentoring sessions and resourceful networking sessions to get insights from leading women of colour in the industry and collaborate with peers.
