Mentoring Program

Mentoring Program

New York Institute of Technology’s Women’s Technology Council (WTC) mentoring program was created to support our New York Tech female students - from college to career.

Each mentor-mentee pair will participate in engaging one-to-one sessions throughout the duration of the program. These meetings will allow for meaningful interactions that provide both mentor and mentee with a profound sense of accomplishment, satisfaction, and growth. The close bonds formed will provide mentees with a solid understanding of what to expect as they learn and grow professionally, and with the confidence they need to succeed in life.

More importantly, the pairs are grouped together into a larger team/cohort. They will meet regularly as a group, allowing fellow participants, who represent different backgrounds, perspectives, and disciplines, to form new and lasting professional and personal relationships. This multidisciplinary, group approach gives everyone a chance to share their own unique insights and experiences, providing exceptional and unexpected opportunities for individual growth.

We are currently accepting applications for the next cohort starting fall 2021!
