Mentorship: Creating effective mentoring experiences for those underrepresented in STEM

Hear from a panel of organizations – both those providing mentors and those serving mentees –  as they share lessons learned on how to build and sustain STEM mentoring programs/relationships, as well as best practices in mentoring underrepresented youth in STEM.  

Then break into small groups to work with other session attendees on planning and next steps for your mentoring efforts (Ex: Are you looking to build a mentoring program? Are you a mentor looking to improve their practice? And more!).

Presenter: Molly Schuld, Northwestern Mutual

Panelists: Jason Floyd, Project Lead the Way teacher at Fairview School, Milwaukee Public Schools; Molly Schuld, STEM Programs & Outreach Specialist at Northwestern Mutual; Ashley Valentine, STEM Program Manager at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee; Stacy Zaja, Manager of Global Community Relations & Contributions at Rockwell Automation

Moderator: LaNelle Ramey, Director of Black and Latino Male Achievement at Milwaukee Public Schools and Interim Executive Director of MENTOR Greater Milwaukee
