Pledge to Mentor
January is national mentoring month!
Join us in celebrating by pledging to mentor with ManyMentors in 2017!
Why?? ManyMentors' mission is to inspire, encourage and support underrepresented students' interest in, pursuit and attainment of STEM degrees. We utilize technology and guided relationship development to bridge the gaps that currently exist in the STEM workforce.
STEM education creates critical thinkers, increases science literacy, and enables the next generation of innovators, which lead to new products and processes that sustain our economy. This innovation and science literacy depends on a solid knowledge base in the STEM areas.
Moreover, STEM jobs are growing 3x more than non-STEM jobs, and the median average wage is nearly double than the national average.
However, women and ethnic individuals represent a mere 24% and 12%, respectively, of the STEM workforce. Lack of diversity and inclusion in STEM perpetuates economic and social disadvantages for these individuals, as well as decreases overall access to innovative ideas needed to address the variety of issues we face nationally and world-wide.
Pledge to mentor with ManyMentors to
change to faces of STEM tomorrow, today!
Thank you for being awesome.
