Mentees and Mentors GROUP Mentoring Program

"GROUP" mentoring participants mingle at monthly meetings which rotate between guest speakers and fun group activities organized by the M&M program. These meetings will help you to get to know other women in engineering, to learn about strategies for reaching personal and professional goals, as well as to receive personal support and affirmation of your skills and values by others. The GROUP Program provides group network-mentoring relationships where distinctions between mentors and mentees are not made (i.e., we all learn from one another) and flexible attendance requirements can accommodate students who will not be on campus for the full academic year (e.g., due to a study abroad, co-op opportunity, or December graduation).

In this group mentoring structure, you will have the opportunity to hear advice from a diverse group of women (which could include other engineering disciplines as well as your own). Please recognize that different participants may attend each meeting due to the flexible attendance requirements but that this provides a wonderful opportunity to meet a variety of new people throughout the year. The GROUP Mentoring Program meets monthly on Wednesdays from 6:00 - 7:45 p.m. with dinner provided. Participants in the GROUP Program are required to attend at least 2 monthly meetings and at least one Social event and one Access Alum each semester.

Learn about a Small GROUP Option within the GROUP Program that you may find beneficial. This option is for GROUP Program participants only and has another set of commitments.
