Session: Challenges in IT mentoring female mentee
During my 20+ years career in IT, unfortunately, a lot of times I observed a lot of female colleagues who sacrificed their professional career because of fear of not coping with balancing career/family. Sometimes they were afraid to even try a leader position. Others after a several-year-long career break were afraid to come back because they've forgotten everything they knew.
As an active IT Mentor (a member of Women Who Code Ukraine) I help women to find themselves and start from scratch/come back to their careers in IT, as well as get a promotion to leadership positions.
I feel my calling in this.
- How to teach adults in a more effective way
- How to build a learning path in the career
- How to stop be afraid to succeed as a female
- How to get more from cooperation Mentor-Mentee
- How to make learning both fun and productive
