Hi, I'm Monica. I have been involved with the McMaster Women in Engineering Society since starting at Mac in my first year and I highly encourage all students to get involved with something that interests them. We know engineering is tough, but it can be easier with a mentor, someone who's been through it all before and can answer your questions. As Mentorship Co-coordinator with Elsa Tomy, my goal is to facilitate mentorship opportunities between first-year and upper-year students to help them grow into confident leaders in their field. Looking forward to another great year!
Hi everyone! My name is Elsa and I'm excited to be running the mentorship program under the Women in Engineering Society alongside Monica Black. I look forward to meeting all the excited women who are entering a new journey in the complicated world of Engineering, as well as the women who have paved the way for them. Mentorship programs have definitely helped me throughout my studies, whether it be talking about the struggles of various classes or having long chats about the future. There is always some value and wisdom to be passed down from everyone and I hope through the events we plan and the matches we make, everyone can find a mentor to look up to and create long-lasting bonds with! Hope to see you all at our events!
