Mentor the Next Gen of Problem-Solvers & Innovators
Mentor Orientation will bring us together as a team to walk through standards, elements of a good mentor-mentee match, and effective approaches to addressing girls’ concerns. We’ll zero in on the vision and desired outcomes for girls and mentors. We’ll address what it means to mentor and walk through mentoring examples with young women from our previous programs. You’ll also be oriented to Pretty Brainy culture at work in one-on-one mentoring and small and large groups. New mentors will be paired with returning mentors for the Feb. 22 Mentor & Mentee Meet-Up.
New & Returning Mentors Come Together Feb. 22
New and returning mentors come together with girls Wed., Feb. 22, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., at the Mentor & Mentee Meet-Up: an Evening with the Pretty Brainy Mentors. Plan to arrive by 4:30 p.m.
Venue: Everyday Joe’s Coffee House, 144 S. Mason St., Fort Collins, CO.
Goal: Champion and mentor girls on their top questions as they navigate STEM and STEAM studies and plan for their dream jobs and careers. It bears repeating: it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know why there aren’t more rocket scientists who happen to be women. So let’s move the needle on parity in the STEM workforce and classroom. Meeting girls where they are, we’ll answer their questions, bring perspective to their concerns, and offer nuts-and-bolts ideas for their next steps forward in STEM and STEAM.
Let’s do this!
Make It a Year of Critical Resources — for Girls + Ourselves
Feb. 22 also is our chance to connect girls with these top resources, both happening Wed., March 8 —
