STEM Pipeline Mentorship Program

STEM Pipeline Mentorship Program

Supporting the entry and success of young women in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics through structured networking and professional development opportunities.


Background Information

The STEM Pipeline Mentorship Program was launched in 2015 as a way to support young women pursuing STEM fields and careers through a peer and near-peer group mentoring structure. We believe that fostering more inclusive and diverse STEM communities relies on both training women in practical skills such as time management, goal-setting, and financial planning and creating networks of women in STEM that are committed to supporting and assisting one another in succeeding. We have bi-monthly meetings composed of skills-based workshops and social events that allow for training, knowledge sharing, and opportunities for program participants to get to know each other and build a network of support. This program is generously funded by the UA Commission on the Status of Women.
