Description: PAS Kolkata proposes biweekly mentoring workshops in Guwahati for 30 women between the ages of 20-25 pursuing undergraduate studies in STEM fields in Guwahati who have little to no exposure to the U.S and the American higher education system. The workshops will be conducted by experts/mentors, preferably female alumni of USG programs, who have built successful careers. Alumni from the Kolkata chapter of the previous PAS project Women for Women: Supporting Each Other to Build Sustainable Careers will be invited from time to time to mentor and share their experience. In addition, the women will participate in virtual exchange sessions with current STEM students studying in a U.S. university, preferably EducationUSA alumni or STEM Fulbright Fellows. The findings from the virtual exchanges will be incorporated into the workshop to achieve a global perspective of working women professionals.
