WISE Events

Mentorship Program Event

WISE will be running its annual Mentorship Program again this year, in which students are paired with female mentors in STEM fields. The program will consist of four formal events, while also incorporating one-on-meetings between mentors and mentees. Taking part in WISE’s Mentorship Program is a valuable opportunity to gain insights into the professional world, while getting advice that will help both in university and beyond.

We welcome students of all genders and all years to sign-up! If you are interested in having a mentor, please fill out an application using the link below:

Events to look forward to include:
1.    Mentorship Kick-Off in early October
2.    Trivia Night in mid November
3.    Paint Night in late January
4.    Mentorship Wrap-Up in early March

If you are an upper year female in a STEM program (3rd year +), we would also love to have you as a mentor! Since we have a limited number of spots for student mentors, we encourage you to apply early using the link below:
Additionally, if you know of any females working in a STEM field and think they may be interested in becoming a mentor for our program, please email WISE’s Mentorship Coordinator, Helena, at ariahelena.cherniakk@ucalgary.ca and we will reach out to them with more information.
