WiTT / Lipscomb Mentoring Program
WiTT is working with Lipscomb to develop an enduring mentoring program. We are looking for professional women who work in the IT space to partner up with a female student from Lipscomb who is pursuing a degree and soon a career in the same or similar field you work in. We currently have eight female students interested in this exciting opportunity!
The commitment would be approximately one meeting per month with your mentee. There will be topics provided to help drive conversation, but really it is you providing an opportunity to a young woman who is attending Lipscomb with the hope of a career in the IT realm. This is a great way to help encourage women to pursue a career path in Technology. Please contact Britni.email@example.com or by phone 724-462-9716 with any interest or questions you may have about the program.
