The Mentor’s Call: A Heroic Response to Women Leaving Technology

October 15 12:00 pm-1:00 pm
310 D Level Three GRBCC
TRACK: Career
Workshop
AUDIENCE: Senior Women

Considering that 51% of women in technology, engineering, and science leave their careers (Hewlett et al. 2008), mentors and coaches must seek compelling ways to alleviate the pressures their junior colleagues are facing. In this workshop that reflects upon Campbell’s Monomyth, mentors and coaches will (1) realize that they themselves have survived their own Heroic Journeys and (2) acquire a tool that will allow them to guide and support others.
