MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

A multi-faceted mentorship program that provides an intimate network and exclusive access to events and workshops that will cultivate a community for women in tech on self-improvement and learning from each other.

This hands-on program is unlike any other, it is an exclusive community of techies who get the opportunity to learn and grow through monthly meetups based on their individual and collective goals, and overall a community to ask each other questions, attend local events together, and learn from one another.

The 2021 Mentorship Program will open soon! If you are interested in joining please signup for the waitlist using the link below. We will be matching members from the waitlist to groups throughout the program.
