In the last issue of this quarterly enewsletter, we asked you to tell us about your mentoring interests and needs so that we have a better understanding and can better shape YaleWomen's mentoring network. Your responses to the survey yielded great food for thought! Stay tuned for news about what emerges from your input. In the interim, many of you said you are interested in working with current Yale students. Check the YaleWomen calendar for student-oriented events the chapters might host this summer. Here are a few other opportunities to explore and take advantage of:
Designed for career exploration, the program provides an unparalleled opportunity for students at Yale College and the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences to learn more about professional opportunities in a given career field. For more information, email [email protected].
YEI Mentor Network taps Yale alumni to create a robust, engaged circle of founders and senior executives who can advise both growing student and faculty startups. For more information, email Rick Hunt at [email protected].
1stGenYale is an emerging AYA Shared Interest Group (SIG) whose mission is to support alums who are 1stGen and share a common bond to make Yale a welcoming and supportive place for current first-generation students at Yale College and the Graduate & Professional Schools. For more information, email [email protected].
CLY connects students and alumni. By sharing career and life experiences, alums help students develop career plans and life skills. CLY events offer insight on both unusual and established career paths, along with networking and mentoring opportunities as well as interviewing and job-search skills. CLY events go deeper than career wisdom: alumni share insights about leadership, teamwork, financial literacy and greater self-awareness (e.g., strengths, passions, and work/life balance). The 2017-18 calendar of events is in the planning stage. To indicate your interest in serving as a mentor, click here.
