Women in STEM Mentorship Program: Mentoring Resources

This guide is a collection of resources focused on mentorship and women in STEM.  It's not an exhaustive list.  I've also mainly included sources which can be read online, though there are a few print titles. 

If you would like to find more resources on a specific topic, suggest an item for this page, or suggest that the library acquire something related to this topic, please contact me using the info in the box on the right. 

--Thanks!
