Girls In STEM: What Makes A Good Mentor? (VIDEO)

(8) Comments | Posted April 15, 2013 | 3:07 PM

Editor's Note: This post is part of a series produced by HuffPost's Girls In STEM Mentorship Program. Join the community as we discuss issues affecting women in science, technology, engineering and math.
Update: The time of the Google+ hangout has passed. Please view the video above to catch up on the conversation and leave your thoughts in the comments.

Last week we notified 50 more students and mentors that they had been selected to participate in our girls in STEM mentorship program. As we continue to match pairs throughout the next few weeks, we'll be featuring blog posts from our students and mentors as well as offering advice from experts and professionals in the field.

But we've found a common theme in our research: More women want to mentor, but don't exactly know how. We've received dozens of questions about what level a professional should be at to be considered a mentor, or how her career path should look. We've heard from amazing women who wanted resource guides or more knowledge on working with the younger generation. We hear you, and we open the discussion up to you.

Join us for a Google+ hangout! What does it take to be a good STEM mentor?

This Wednesday, April 17th, Connie Chow, the Executive Director of Science Club For Girls, and Karen Petersen, the Chief Executive Officer of the EdLab Group and the Principal Investigator for the National Girls Collaborative Project, will be joining us to talk about the joys and challenges of mentorship. In this hangout, we'll be asking them about the most important difficulties role models face, what makes a good mentor, and what resources are available to help those who'd like to mentor a student or younger...
