‘She’s been life changing’: Why female mentors matter in tech

In an industry with a diversity problem, mentoring can help women to build up their confidence and career.

This is an interesting article at the guardian written by Jessica Bateman. 

I would like to point out to two different mentoring program I am involved at:

  • MENTOS, for female engineering students at UPF, starting this academic year 2016-17 with around 30 undergrad students and engineering professionals around Barcelona.
  • WiMIR mentoring program for women in Music Information Retrieval, starting last year and now in its second round with around 5o mentors/mentees. For the first time I will take some mentoring at this program from a colleague, I am sure it will be a very enriching experience.
