MENTORS- Empowering Future Female Tech Leaders

Professional Leader Mentors

The goal of this program is to empower and guide the next generation of female tech enthusiasts. In the dynamic landscape of technology, fostering diversity and inclusion is more critical than ever. Your unique experiences and insights can make a significant impact on young women aspiring to carve out their paths in the tech world. We invite you to consider becoming a mentor for female students who are eager to explore and excel in the field of technology. We have created Women in Technology-AppState building from the momentum we started at Cyber Summit in September 2023 and we would love for you to join in our initiatives.

Here's how you can be a transformative force:  

  1.  Inspiration and Representation: Your journey serves as a powerful example for aspiring female technologists. By sharing your experiences, you can inspire confidence and instill the belief that success in the tech industry is not only achievable but also for them.

  2.  Guidance Tailored to Female Perspectives: Navigating the tech landscape can present unique challenges for women. Your guidance can provide invaluable insights into overcoming gender-specific obstacles, building resilience, and thriving in a predominantly male industry.

  3.  Building a Supportive Network: Your network is a valuable resource that can open doors for mentees. By introducing them to like-minded female professionals, you contribute to the growth of a supportive community that encourages collaboration and mutual success.

  4.  Promoting Diversity in Tech: Your active participation in mentoring contributes to creating a more diverse and inclusive tech community. By working with female students, you play a pivotal role in breaking down barriers and fostering an environment where women can thrive.

If you are interested in becoming a mentor for female students, please contact Samantha Williams (, and she will provide additional details about the program. Your commitment to uplifting and empowering the next generation of female tech leaders will undoubtedly leave a lasting legacy in our industry.
