Mentoring

One of SWE’s core values is mutual support, meaning that the organization fosters mentoring and the development of professional and personal networks. SWE members can take advantage of mentoring opportunities at conferences and through the SWE Mentor Network and Mentoring Committee. Get involved today!

Sign up for the SWE Mentor Network

e b o BW

The SWE Mentor Network is an exclusive members-only community for the facilitation of mentoring conversations. As a SWE member, you can offer mentoring services, receive mentoring ― or even act as both a mentor and mentee. Check out the FAQ page to learn more!

Here’s how you can sign up:

  1. Log in to the SWE member portal.
  2. Select ‘More’ from the top menu and click on ‘Mentor Sign-up’ or ‘Mentee Sign-up.’ Please note you will only see these options if you have an active paid SWE membership. If you are interested in being a mentor and mentee, please sign up as a mentor, which will allow you to accept bookings from mentees and schedule mentoring conversations with other mentors.

You can also keep an eye out for sign-up links in SWE’s weekly member newsletter or reach out to membership@swe.org so we can verify your SWE membership and send you an invite!
