INAUGURAL MENTORSHIP

TechLadies Mentorship - Program Details

TechLadies Mentorship is a 3-month mentorship program that pairs women who are transitioning into or establishing themselves in the tech industry with industry practitioners.

This program is designed for women with technical skills and ready to apply for employment or internships as software engineers (backend and frontend), product managers, or web designers, and women with less than 2 years of experience in these roles.

Selected mentees are required to:

  • have a clear goal for what they'll like to achieve from this program

  • commit to bi-weekly meetings, minimum 1 hour each time, with their mentor from Oct 2018 - Jan 2019. Meetings can be conducted either online or in-person

  • participate in a written interview and write a technical article (on a topic of their choice) for the TechLadies blog

  • submit a short progress report on a bi-weekly cadence

Sign up to volunteer to be a TechLadies Mentor

We are currently looking for volunteer mentors for our inaugural TechLadies Mentorship program. Join us to increase women's participation in the tech industry!

What kind of mentors are you looking for?

We welcome people of all genders and nationalities to be a mentor, as long as they:

  • have at least 3 years of experience as software engineers (backend and frontend), product managers, or web designers
  • are comfortable to mentor on one of these topics: becoming job-ready, preparing for a technical interview, planning career paths, or building a professional network in tech

Experience in being a mentor is a plus, not a requirement. You will be notified if you are selected as a mentor on a rolling basis until 30 Aug.

What can mentors expect out of the experience?

You can expect to make a difference with like-minded people passionate about the same cause! Beyond that, we would like to thank your time and skills by:

  • recognizing and profiling you at TechLadies website, FB group, and FB page
  • putting you first in line for goodies as TechLadies receive them
  • providing you a seat at all TechLadies events, and an exclusive TechLadies t-shirt!

What is the expected level of commitment?

To ensure that mentees succeed, mentors are to:

  • commit to bi-weekly meetings, minimum 1 hour each time, with their mentee from Oct 2018 - Jan 2019. Meetings can be conducted either online or in-person
  • submit a short progress report on a bi-weekly cadence
  • participate in ancillary events as part of this program (i.e. monthly drinks and get-togethers).

Each mentor can be matched with up to two mentees.
