The purpose of Caltech's Women Mentoring Women (WMW) program is to provide support for Caltech undergraduate, graduate, and postdoc women as they negotiate their academic, professional, and personal development. *We use an inclusive definition of "women" that includes trans women, gender queer and non binary people.

A little more about the program:

  • For graduate students: The WMW graduate program matches postdoctoral scholars with upper-level graduate women and upper-level graduate women with first-year graduate women for a one-to-one mentoring experience.
  • For undergraduate students: students will pair first- and second-year undergraduate women and upper-class undergraduate women for a one-to-one mentoring experience. In addition, undergraduates can request to have a Caltech staff member or a graduate student as a mentor.
  • For postdocs: Join us either as mentors for graduate students who are looking for their next steps or join a Postdoc mentoring Pod. Email Erin-Kate @ [email protected] for more information!
  • For Staff: Help facilitate mentoring "families" or pods. Each pod is composed of up to 6 undergraduates, graduates, and postdocs. The pod will meet monthly or bi-monthly for 60 minutes to connect and catch up. Pod Mentoring runs January 2020-June 2020
  • The program offers academic and professional development workshops and discussions, as well as social and networking opportunities throughout the academic year. Matches receive coffee stipends and other resource materials.
