Women in STEM Mentoring Circles

Women in STEM Mentoring Circles | Undergraduate & Graduate Students

The Women in STEM Mentoring Circles program is a joint effort between ARROWS and the Graduate Women in Science & Engineering, Undergraduate Women in Science & Engineering, Society of Women Engineers, Women’s Professional Development, Women in Computer Science and Girls Who Code student organizations. The program seeks to create an environment for diverse discussion, support, networking, and resource sharing among undergraduates, graduate students, and alumni.

Mentoring circles are made up of undergraduate mentees and graduate student and/or alumni mentors, creating an opportunity for mentoring across experience levels as well as peer-to-peer mentoring. Circles are generally expected to meet once a month during the Fall and Spring semesters. (Note: we plan to follow BU COVID guidelines for in-person program-wide events. Individual mentoring circles are free to meet virtually or in person according to their personal preferences.)
