Mentorship for women in STEM to up-skill in Data Science, AI, and Programming

6 weeks - Fully digital - Up to 8 hours of mentorship

The 'FemmeForward: Women in STEM Mentorship Program' is designed by leading Women in Tech initiatives in the Nordics to empower women to gain the confidence, tech skills, and network they need to advance their careers with purpose in the STEM field.

With 6 weeks of fully digital sessions, up to 8 hours of individualized mentorship, and access to our team of expert mentors, you'll gain the knowledge and skills you need to upskill in data science and artificial intelligence, and use innovative technology, negotiate a higher salary and build the strategies to engineer the future in tech and finance. 

We believe that women in Tech & Finance deserve a seat at the table.

Why FemmeForward Mentorship

For a vibrant career in STEM, mentorship remains the chute that will get you up and flying ahead of the crowd. Get assigned to a mentor suitable for you and you’ll be amazed by the support, learning, and enjoyment you get out of the process of conquering STEM. Because each female that makes a leap forward brings our society closer to eliminating the gender gap in STEM.

Why You Should Join

Research shows countless proven benefits of mentorship programs. For instance:

Our mentors are experts in tech and finance and will help you up-skill and provide useful tips and tricks to build the tools and strategies for a purposeful career in tech. Our mentorship dramatically builds your confidence and provides a strong support network.

Moreover, the additional hours of one on one mentorship  address the mentee’s very individual questions.

  • 🤓Insights on how to use Data Science, Programming (R, Python, SQL), and Artificial Intelligence to solve business problems

What is expected from Mentees? 

Mentees are expected to know what they want out of the mentorship sessions with their mentors. They will set a goal together with their mentors on what they want to work on during the 6 weeks.

Who can join?

We accept applications from women who show a keen interest and dedication to leverage their career in the Tech & Finance sector. You should have at least 1-5 years of working experience in a related field and know what you expect from the mentorship program.

The mentorship is free of charge but we do charge a EUR50 "no-show fee" in case >1 weekly session has been missed to protect the valuable time of our mentors.

A mathematician performing Data Science or Engineering, writing lines and lines of Python or R code balanced by poetry and performance co-creation.
Currently, a data engineer in the IT & Finance sector in a start-up-like environment with previous experiences in big companies and academic background in Probability and Statistics. 
As a mathematician, I believe that for data-informed decision-making, it is crucial to go beyond the mechanical deployment of statistical analysis. As an artist, I grasp problems with empathy, playfulness, and curiosity. As an eco-feminist, I see the biggest capital in people and sharing, not only the women in STEM, experience.

Neha Imtiaz Ullah

I am an electrical engineering student at Denmark's Technical University, and I have been a first-hand witness to how small a portion of STEM fields include women. The basis of Nordic Women in STEM lies in the realization of just that. I have ever since I started university wanted to serve in a helpful role to those seeking inspiration, help, or advice regarding the STEM fields. I finally decided to own that role and be intentional about it. 
I founded Nordic Women in STEM with a goal of being able to expose girls to the STEM fields and the women working in these fields. Role-models are essential and so is trying out STEM concepts to really understand what STEM is all about. My ultimate goal is to work towards narrowing the gender gap that exists today and establishing initiatives that will better allow girls to decide what they want to pursue.
