MentorNet is the award-winning national e-mentoring network that addresses the retention and success of those in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The program has been especially effective for women by providing real-world access to professional networks often unavailable to them in the male-dominated fields of science and engineering.
Partnering with a range of professionals from the STEM and healthcare fields, MEDB's Women in Technology recruits new student proteges across the ten-campus University of Hawaii system to participate in MentorNet's Web-based program.
Proteges are matched in one-on-one e-mentoring relationships, usually through email -- with mentors who have professional work experience. MentorNet provides the training, coaching and ongoing support to foster meaningful matches.
Currently, over 155 local students, post-docs, junior faculty, and alumni are members of the MentorNet community.
Hawaii campuses participating in MentorNet include:
- Hawaii Community College
- Honolulu Community College
- Kapiolani Community College
- Kauai Community College
- Leeward Community College
- Maui Community College
- University of Hawaii-Hilo
- University of Hawaii-Manoa
- University of Hawaii-West Oahu
