STEM Mentorship Program coming to Frederick: Million Women Mentors

Along with Frederick Community College, Woman to Woman Mentoring Inc., and the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research, Hood College has taken an active role in bringing the Million Women Mentors movement to Frederick County. The Million Women Mentors mission is to strengthen science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) opportunities for females in the Frederick area. Frederick’s new Million Women Mentors is seeking female STEM professionals to serve as mentors for undergraduate students. The commitment for this six-month program is one meeting a month, and a call or email once a week. Among the Million Women Mentors are Hood alumnae Marjorie R. Smithhisler ’04, Sanya F. Whitaker, C’15, Vanessa S. Gress ’08, Joy Miller Beveridge ’82 and Michele Moody Snyder ’01. If you’re interested in becoming a mentor for STEM women, or would like more information about the program, please contact Tonya Hatosy-Stier.
