THRIVE: Lassonde's First-Year Female Student Mentorship Program
Research informs us that a structured mentorship program for young university women, by women mentors, has substantial impact on the retention of women in engineering and science program. As the home of the Renaissance Engineer, our goal is not simply to have diversity, but to do something with that diversity – innovate and lead. In the fall of 2018, Lassonde is excited to launch its very own pilot mentorship program for all first-year female-identified students. With passion and perspective, we aim to increase resiliency and pathways to success for our incoming female students.
