Information session on the Women in Technology mentoring programme

The information session about the programme will take place online on 26 February at 1 p.m.

Women in Technology is back for a fourth year of the WIT Mentoring Programme.

After three successful rounds, with the last one organised in collaboration with the CERN Alumni team, WIT is offering yet another opportunity to work on your personal or professional development with CERN or Alumni mentors this year.

Mentoring is a great opportunity to develop a relationship with a senior colleague who has extended experience at CERN and a good knowledge of the organisation. Mentees can benefit from a confidential space where guidance can be offered and issues discussed.

The program is open to anyone with the clear motivation to work on personal and professional development. The exercise runs from May until December 2021.

The call for applications will be announced in wit-matters in early March.

For more details, attend the information session organised on 26 February. In the meantime, you can get more information on the WIT webpage.

“It is much more than women supporting women, it is about creating bonds and supporting each other as members of a community.” (Mentor)

“Taking part as mentee with an Alumni was a great experience. Being in touch with someone with experience outside of CERN was very valuable as the overall topics did not only revolve around CERN but more generally around career choices and "real word" challenges.” (Mentee)

“Amazing opportunity to grow, develop your full potential and acquire control over the direction of your career.” (Mentee)

“I really enjoyed the opportunity to help a younger version of me and I think that both mentors and mentees have a lot to learn from each other!” (Alumni Mentor)
