The inaugural Women in STEM program, TechSavvy, was born in response to the impact of COVID-19 on women in the workplace - and the growing need to be comfortable on the computer. The program is designed to build this computer literacy through a six-week, one-on-one tutoring program. Participants and mentors meet weekly for roughly an hour to learn, practice skills, discuss personal and professional goals, and build their confidence on common applications. The program is tailored to best fit the participant - A sample program outline has been included below.
