Space for women has a goal of encouraging women and girls to become involved in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education. The 2023 Space4Women Mentorship Program matches women and girls with mentors who are selected from professionals in the space industry! Mentors can still apply until November 14th and the application for mentees will open in December. Via Space4Women, click here to see the digital brochure about the Space4Women program.
The United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) is excited to announce the launch of the 2023 Space4Women Mentorship Program for women and girls in Space and STEM.
The Space4Women Mentorship Program matches experienced mentors in the space sector with women and girls (mentees) who would like to pursue their studies or a career in space or STEM related subjects.
Mentees are an indispensable element for the future of the space industry. In pursuit of space career, young women and girls need the motivation and support. Mentors are an important part of encouraging women and girls to pursue education and careers in the space sector. As professionals and leaders in the industry, both men and women, can be seen as role models for young women and girls to learn from and gain support.
The Mentorship Program has specific guidelines for participationPDF of both mentors and mentees.
Before submitting an application, prospective mentors and mentees should carefully read this document (available in the right column) to understand expectations and responsibilities.
Mentors in the Space4Women Mentorship Program are selected from leaders and professionals in the space industry and represent a variety of fields and geographic regions.
Together, these mentors support women and girls around the world, and share their expertise, knowledge, and experiences to build an environment where women and girls play an active and equal role in space science, technology, innovation, and exploration.
