January is National Mentoring Month, and to mark the occasion, Million Women Mentors will be hosting a #BeyondTheBuzzChat Twitter Chat on Thursday, January 17, 2019 at 3pm ET! This discussion is a deep dive into MWM’s Beyond The Buzzword social media campaign, which seeks to get STEM professionals to go beyond just supporting the concept of mentoring, and actually get out there and be a mentor! Join us for this important discussion to help us show what mentoring relationships actually look like IRL!

All are welcome to join this Twitter Chat to help us shed light on what mentoring relationships actually look like IRL and show the power of mentoring as one of the most effective tools in encouraging women and girls in STEM careers and education paths. And we’re excited to announce some featured guests in the discussion:

Gabriela A. González (@GabyAGzz) — Deputy Director of the Intel Foundation & Chair of the NSF STEM Education Advisory Panel

Kentucky Lt. Governor Jeanean Hampton (@LtGovHampton)

Questions will focus in on the importance of mentoring for women and girls in STEM, advice for starting and maintaining strong mentoring relationships, and opportunities to #ThankYourMentor. Join @MillionWMentors at 3PM ET on 1/17 to add to this discussion and use #BeyondTheBuzzChat!
