Mentors give you directions.
Sherpas take you there.
The number of women working in the Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths (known as STEM) fields is unacceptably low. Amongst female students studying relevant subjects we've noticed that a lot of highly desired talent is being lost so we are giving them a reason to stay in the field and pursue a STEM career.
There are a good number of reasons to stay on the STEM path; we're providing the right motivators and toolsets for female students to take advantage of all that the STEM industry has to offer. By giving female students personal, relatable and real role models as career 'Sherpas' who will teach them good career habits which will stay with them for a lifetime, we hope to stem the 'brain drain'.
Every young woman has the chance to be matched with a woman in industry who will nurture you, might take you to industry networking events and help you complete career boosting activities.
Young women have the opportunity to get a week's worth of work experience with one of our partners, and the chance to attend industry events.
ON DEMAND SERVICE
Each Sherpee has access to The Stemette Society to ask questions, view profiles and learn more about specific aspects of the industry as well as record progress with their Sherpa.
