The Harvard Women in Technology+Allies Mentoring Program is an all volunteer, staff-led 6-month program where we match people who hold marginalized gender identities. Our definition of marginalized genders includes cisgender women, transgender women, transgender men, non-binary individuals, genderqueer individuals , and all gender identities which have been oppressed or disadvantaged by unequal power structures. Mentees will be paired with Harvard IT staff mentors. Pairs will be expected to meet for at least 1- hour a month. The Harvard WIT+ Mentoring program also offers monthly events that promote skill development and networking with other program participants.
The Harvard College Women's Center's Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (WiSTEM) Mentorship Program has matched Harvard College undergraduate students to Harvard University graduate mentors and professionals in STEM fields since 2001. Through this program, participants engage in one-to-one mentoring, are invited to a range of other events and programs, and receive updates on opportunities to support their success in STEM. Additionally, they benefit from being part of a larger professional network and community promoting diversity and inclusion in STEM at Harvard.
HGWISE is a graduate student organization founded in 2005 dedicated to the personal, academic, and professional development of women in natural sciences, social sciences, and engineering at Harvard University. HGWISE aims to enhance the graduate experience for all graduate students in science and engineering at Harvard by providing opportunities for networking, professional development, and mentoring with a specific focus on issues targeting the experience of female-identifying and non-conforming community members.
Mentoring triads are modeled on the success of the peer groups created by the UW BRAINS program. The overall goal of the triad is to extend and foster your mentoring and networking experiences. It particularly aims to be a forum to support others in finding workable solutions to problems and building resilience.
