Women in Technology Mentorship Program

Research indicates that women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields are underrepresented. Women make up half of the U.S college-educated workforce, but only 26 percent of the professional computing workforce. (National Center for Women & Information Technology, 2017)

The Women in Technology Mentorship Program at Tulane University School of Professional Advancement is committed to providing support and mentorship to women who seek to obtain degrees in the Information Technology Program. This mentorship initiative addresses the discrepancy in technology careers by partnering students with a strong network of female mentors who help navigate challenges faced by women in information technology fields.

This emphasis dovetails with SoPA’s mission to help working adults reach their full potential in their educations and their careers.

Program Purpose

Our goals are to assist students to:

  • Build meaningful relationships with a technology mentor to share personal and professional experiences
  • Expand female participation in technology professions by connecting them with a broad base of current industry leaders
  • Provide mentorship during the transition from school to work

The time commitment is:

  • 30 minutes to an hour a month for mentorship meetings (in-person or through video conference).
  • Students are responsible for setting the meeting agenda, but keep in mind that organic conversations are enriching to student success as well.
  • Note that the Women Mentoring in Technology program is not meant to supplant academic counselors, career services, or other University support systems, but should be viewed as an enhancement to the variety of Tulane student support.
