The W.I.S.E. Women Mentorship Program provides mentorship opportunities to high school girls who are considering STEM careers and will expose, engage, and inspire young women entering STEM careers. This application is for high school students who are seeking mentorship from a STEM professional.

Women in the STEM Economy (WISE Women) is designed to be a consortium of diverse women from all aspects of STEM that are using their voices and expertise to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion within the economic framework of the Topeka and Shawnee County area.

    • Diversify the STEM landscape by participating in mentorship opportunities with young women who are considering STEM careers
    • Develop a robust STEM mentorship program designed to expose, engage, and inspire young women entering STEM careers
