Help us Provide Mentoring for Women in Engineering and Femineer

Cal Poly Pomona's Women in Engineering Program (CPP WE) was established in 2012 to provide women the resources and supportive services to succeed in engineering. CPP WE serves women undergraduate and graduate students and faculty in the College of Engineering.

In collaboration with corporations, engineering alumni, University offices, faculty and students, CPP WE offers a variety of activities, including WE Chats (student and faculty networking), WE Talk Alumnae Speaker Series (career development workshops), and a variety of student ambassador leadership development experiences. These initiatives are extended to students and faculty throughout the college.

This year, CPP WE plans to add a mentoring program for undergraduate engineering students, as well as for middle school and high school students participating in the Femineer Program. This mentoring program will be a great opportunity for participants to increase their self-confidence, build a sense of belonging within the engineering community, and grow their network with engineering professionals.

      

CPP WE is dedicated to creating a supportive community for engineering students and strives to inspire young girls to consider engineering as a possible career. Exposing young girls to the creativity and excitement of engineering through role models and hands-on activities is an excellent way to build their interest and self-confidence.

The Femineer Program provides K-12 students with project-based learning experiences. The program engages participants through highly creative, hands-on activities. Femineers acquire the technical knowledge and practical skills necessary to become confident and strong in their future careers. We hope to inspire many young girls to reach their potential through engineering!
