• About the Program

    The PWIT Women's Mentorship Program is a five-month program that focuses on the professional and personal development of female tech students and recent graduates.


    Our goal is to connect you with inspiring tech professionals who can provide crucial career advice and networking, teach you how to make your voice heard and introduce you to entrepreneurial skills that will benefit you as you enter the job market.


    The Mentorship Program matches mentors and mentees based on their mutual interests, goals, expertise, and general background. Over the course of five months, mentor and mentee will build a close relationship through online communication, face-to-face meetings, webinars and two group events hosted by Portuguese Women in Tech.


    The PWIT Women's Mentorship Program will be kicking off in March and will be open to 47 mentees (Porto & Lisbon). Applications are now closed!


    We are looking for:

    • Female (tech, design and data science) students and recent graduates;
    • With a strong desire for professional and personal development;
    • Committed to the program for its entire duration.
