We're building Bridges.

Bridge is a year-long mentorship program designed to give students the tools to not only build a bridge to their career, but the confidence to cross it. 

Our program is for first and second year undergraduate women (cis-gendered, trans-gendered, women-identified), non-binary and gender non-conforming individuals.

Our year-long academic program was intentionally designed to help students gain the confidence and skills they need to enter and rise in any field they choose. 

Build confidence with us. Mentorship groups along with our international network of women and non-binary folks will give students the support and encouragement they need to take on new challenges.

Encourage

Provide

Build a toolkit with us. Our team is committed to providing students with professional and leadership tools as well as opportunities to use them in practice. 

Connect

Build a network with us. Throughout the academic year students will have a variety of opportunities to connect with peers, mentors and working professionals. 

Mentorship Groups

Make strong, meaningful connections with peers and mentors.

Students will be placed in small mentorship groups:

  • 3-5 first and second year undergraduate students

  • A Primary Mentor (a more senior undergraduate or graduate student)

  • A Secondary Mentor (a professional in academia or industry)

Academic Sessions

Learn practical professional & leadership tools through story-telling, discussion and practice.

Seven professional development and leadership sessions are held throughout the year. Every session features a brief talk from a session anchor who will tell their professional story. Primary Mentors then facilitate a discussion among the group. Each session will end with a challenge to apply that week's practical tool.

Sea Talks
 

Connect with other mentorship groups at other participating institutions.

Bridge seeks to connect its participants with a global support network of women and non-binary folks. Throughout the program Primary Mentors will connect their mentorship group with at least two other groups at different institutions.
