In collaboration with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers we are offering a mentoring scheme for women returners.
We recognise that women returners face particular issues when trying to return to a STEM career after a maternity or career break, so we have extended the MentorSET scheme, in partnership with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers’ Support Network to address this issue.
If you would like mentoring support before, during or after your maternity or career break from a mentor who has shared this experience and returned to STEM then this scheme is for you.
To become a MENTOR or MENTEE under the MentorSET RETURN scheme please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The cost for membership of MentorSET RETURN for members of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers is included in your IMechE membership fee, through financial support from the Support Network. If you are already a member of IMechE, please indicate on the registration form. Forms can be obtained from email@example.com.
If you are not a member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers but would like to enroll on the MentorSET RETURN scheme, you will need to become a member of WES, and give confirmation of your membership number when you return the form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mentors: Mentors are not required to pay to become mentors, but do need to be members of the IMechE or of WES.
Mentees: For non IMechE members there is an annual fee of £110 per mentee.
You will need to pay your fee for joining MentorSET, which can be done by following this link to access your account. In the section ‘My subscriptions’ click on ‘Browse memberships’ and select ‘MentorSET Mentee’ subscription (found at the bottom of the page) and the website will then guide you through the payment process.
Having problems? Please email Cath Heslop at email@example.com, who will be able to guide you through the process.
Please note that matching of mentors and mentees is done at specific times of the year, and is not a continuous process. Forms should be returned as soon as possible.
To receive an application form for MentorSET RETURN please contact the office on firstname.lastname@example.org.
