Mentorship and Advocacy: Enablers for Equal Opportunity

  • June 6, 2018

WITI and Pluralsight present a panel discussion on using Mentorship and Advocacy as tools to enable equal opportunity in the workplace.

Studies have shown that increased workforce diversity strengthens the bottom line and improves employee satisfaction. Thus, many organizations have committed themselves to expanded efforts to fully engage previously underutilized talent. Because WITI is a women's advocacy organization, our panel will begin with a discussion on how leaders can determine the changes required in their organizations to provide opportunities without gender bias.

We'll provide tips on: - Ways to develop strategies to reach the desired state - Proactive measures to encourage buy-in throughout the organization - The powerful role of mentorship in employees' long-term development - Guidance for establishing company mentorship programs - Best practices for both mentors and mentees - How managers can employ mentorship programs to ensure smart career paths for future leaders

Next we'll discuss the use of Advocacy to enable change at the enterprise level, and how to coax active participation in equal-opportunity initiatives. We'll review ways in which both men and women can advocate for fair treatment and productive methods for speaking up in uncomfortable situations.

Join us and our sponsors Pluralsight for a discussion that may seem to be ahead of its time but is actually right on cue.

Advancement of Women in STEM Programs - Challenges & Opportunities

  • November 9, 2017

In corporate America, studies have shown women start to fall behind on day 1 and keep losing ground with every step. There continues to be a need for us to do more - as individuals and as organizations. We need commitments to more than just programs on gender and diversity. We need an awareness of the underlying causes and as importantly what steps can be taken to get us to the place where all women are equally represented.

At WITI our mission is to empower women to achieve unimagined possibilities and transformations through technology, leadership and economic prosperity. As part of an ongoing partnership, WITI, 451 Research and Randstad Technologies have joined together to conduct a survey on how gender viewpoints differ in the workplace. The survey, conducted in June and July 2017 and completed by 1,901 respondents currently working in a science, technology, engineering or math (STEM)-related field, touched on a variety of topics to better understand what factors have helped shape employees' careers and what challenges they face in the workplace. To better understand where gender might result in different points of view, the survey was fielded to both women and men.

Come join WITI, the Seidenberg School at Pace University and Randstad Technologies as we present a panel of insightful, influential women to discuss the challenges and opportunities that exist in STEM fields. Some of the topics our panelists will cover based on our findings in this year's research: job security, influence of mentors, career advancement and Inhibitors, navigating different points of view and lessons learned.

At Pace University, the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems advances women in technology as one of its core commitments. In recent years, the School has recruited and sustained 28% or higher enrollment of female students in its computing programs, surpassing the national average of 18%.
