I would like to thank Vivian Clinton, Department of Veteran Affair for inviting me to speak at the Million Women Mentors Program. I spoke to the group about “Human Capital Worth and Scientific Management,” the session focused on understanding management of business management.
Million Women Mentors is a national movement that supports women and girls to pursue and succeed in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and health care careers through mentoring. Million Women Mentors is working to provide a million STEM mentors by 2019 to girls and women across the nation.
Million Women Mentors aims to increase the number of girls and women planning to pursue an education in STEM. MWM also aims to increase the number of girls and women to obtain bachelor’s degrees in STEM, as well as increase retention of women within STEM fields post-graduation.
About the HCPS Mentoring Program
Hillsborough County Public Schools has registered 100 schools that need a minimum of one mentor per site who is willing to meet regularly with up to five selected female students in grades 5-12 throughout the 2015-2016 school year. The program requires 20 hours of mentorship for each student and/or group. This equates to approximately two hours per month.
