Cal Poly Pomona's Women in Science and Engineering Program (CPP WiSE) is part of the Cal Poly Pomona STEM Success Network. CPP WiSE seeks to recruit, retain and graduate women to advance gender equity in the STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). All who are interested in supporting students in working toward an inclusive and equitable community are welcome.
In collaboration with corporations, alumni, University offices, faculty and students, CPP WiSE offers a variety of activities, including WiSE Chats (student and faculty networking), WiSE Talk Alumni Speaker Series (career development workshops), and a variety of student leadership development experiences.
Last year, we started a mentoring program for undergraduate engineering students. Building on the success of that program in helping participants to increase their self-confidence, build a sense of belonging within the engineering community, and grow their network with engineering professionals, this year we are planning to expand the program to include science and agriculture as well!
Our mentoring program received an INSIGHT Into Diversity 2021 Inspiring Programs in STEM Award! Help us to build on this success.
