The MentorShip Program 2021

The MentorShip Program

The MentorShip Program is hosted by a global NPO, Girls in Tech Taiwan. All the organizers are volunteers. This program is a 3-layer system containing Captains (mentors), Navigators (seniors), and Sailors (mentees). Experts in diverse fields are invited as Captains in different teams. They inspire Navigators and Sailors by experiences sharing. Navigators and Sailors can also seek guidance by bringing challenges they encounter in their daily work routine. By organizing this program, we hope to build a supportive community for women in the technology industry to shine on their career paths.

Feedback

Business

It’s really helpful for me to learn from many practical experiences sharing during the program. I felt inspired and thought out of the box when communicating with my teammates. The discussions in our meetups were very nurturing. It’s a great experience to have people with shared interests as partners to step out of our comfort zones and the bondings between us are also our great gifts.

Data Application

The most impressive parts for me are the sharing from our Captain and the discussion between our teammates. Many job functions that involve in data application including analyst, engineer, scientist, consultant, etc. We may not have such deep sharing with our colleagues from different departments, but we feel free to share our perspectives in the MentorShip Program. Those who are still uncertain about their career paths can also get great recommendations from our Captains or teammates.

Engineering

I am impressed by what I learned from the Captain as well as from my teammates. I was uncertain about my career path for a while. Now I have found my direction and I just realized that I can also be other people’s guides.

Entrepreneurship

Our Captain prepared many useful materials for each meetup to help us learn the ecosystem and the tips of the startups. We step out of our comfort zones to learn new things by our group works and practice to deliver a pitch to angel investors. I am thankful to join this program. I not only broaden my horizon and networks but also feel fully recharged to go back to my position.

UX

Our Captain read the information of all Navigators and Sailors before our meetups. She planned the meetups and teams according to everyone’s needs. Also, she gave Navigators the opportunities to share their own experiences with Sailors. I knew a lot of excellent, clever, and eloquent designers in this program. I discussed and exchanged my experiences with many UX practitioners and we learned better solutions from each others’ sharing. Thanks.
