SisterMentors is celebrating 20 years of work mentoring and advancing women of color in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) fields.

The Union of Concerned Scientists invites you to an information session to learn more about the work SisterMentors does and find out how you can get involved.

SisterMentors is a nonprofit program in the DC area that mentors girls of color from low-income families starting in elementary and middle school and following them through high school and college graduation. The girls are mentored by women of color doctoral students; these women are also helped by SisterMentors as they complete their dissertations and earn their doctorates. The women and girls are African American, Latina, Muslim, Asian American, and immigrants. SisterMentors has helped 42 young women of color to go to college and 64 women of color to earn their doctorates including in Math, Science and Economics.

UCS is proud to host SisterMentors for this one-hour information session. Come learn more about their work, connect with the people behind this great organization, and meet fellow scientists, activists, and UCS supporters.
