Do you want to be a mentee?
Any woman with a technical background, interested in actively participating in communities, can be part of the program. It doesn't matter if you are a professional or a student.
What do you have to do?
Attend talks and training activities given by women who are referents in this sector. What better way to learn about oral communication skills, body language, relax techniques than listening to perts that were once beginners as well? Also, you will have to prepare and present your own talks with your mentor's support, always in a safe space that makes you feel confortable.
Do you want to be a mentor?
You don't need any specific tech skills to be a mentor, you only need experience participating in communities or tech events. Your goal is not to give tech support but teach how to do talks, speak in public and help with their first steps full of anxiety and scenic panic.
What do mentors do?
You need to be in contact (remotely and/or in person) with your mentee approximately once a week or every two weeks. You will review her slides, suggest improvements, help her rehearse the presentation. And, of course, give her support. Reviews help a lot but when you are nervous, you have doubts or don't know how to move forward, something as simple as having someone supporting you is a huge help.
