Mentoring

Mentorship practice has been part of the human experience since the Golden Age of Greece.  Engaging with a mentor as a way to learn and achieve one’s full potential is an ancient and respected practice.  And, it has been the keystone on which AWIS has built its program over the past three decades.

AWIS has a strong track record in providing as well as in authoring and publishing materials about mentoring such as our brand new mentoring handbook Getting the Most out of Your Mentoring Relationships: A Handbook for Women in STEM.

We invite both mentors and protégés to tap into our mentoring resources.

  "When considering a mentoring relationship, find someone who is honest. It may help to look outside of your workplace or outside of your department because your immediate co-workers may not always be comfortable giving the advice or guidance that you need is someone to bounce ideas off of to make sure they make sense."
