Can female mentors patch the leaky STEM pipeline?

Christian Science Monitor | Science

June 6, 2017 --As a freshman, Stephanie Mula found the University of Massachusetts's engineering program "overwhelming." A first-generation college student, she wasn't sure what to expect, how to get the most out of her classes, or where to look for internships. Nevertheless, she went on to beat the odds of the famously leaky science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) pipeline that produces only three professionals for every 100 female students who begin studies in the field. Today, Ms. Mula is an industrial engineer at Raytheon Missile Systems. She credits her success in part to the academic and professional advice of her upperclassmen mentor, a participant in a UMASS Amherst pilot program that's revealing significant benefits for same-gender peer mentoring.


Fostering a connected culture via mentoring at M&S

#artificialintelligence

Ensuring our colleagues feel empowered to be their very best at work is something we feel strongly about here at M&S and mentoring is one way in which we can ensure this is happening. Always looking for ways to be digital first, we have decided to give our mentoring scheme a complete overhaul and launched a new partnership with Guider – a system which uses artificial intelligence (AI) to match compatible mentors in M&S with colleagues from every part of our business who are looking to learn and grow. Budding mentees sign up to the Guider platform and list the skills they'd like to develop. Guider will then suggest possible mentor matches to choose from. Suzie, our People Development Coordinator explains "Seeing how technology can improve the way we connect all the different people in our business and raise the profile and visibility of our collective skillset has been such an eye-opener. "Our partnership with Guider helps instil the data-driven, colleague-led culture vital to our transformation, while engaging, equipping and enabling colleagues to reach their full potential." Having initially introduced Guider six months ago, we now have 500 colleagues who have signed up and benefitted from the new mentoring scheme. "After listing the skills I was looking for support with, Guider produced matches that were bespoke for me – it felt really personal.
