About WiSTEM L.A.:
WiSTEM L.A. (Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics [STEM]) is a pilot mentorship and networking initiative launched through the office of Mayor Eric Garcetti to create a pipeline for women in undergraduate and graduate STEM disciplines to reach related professions. They are matched with mentors who identify as female and are established in a STEM field to receive guidance on how to build a career in sectors largely occupied by men. This year-long program was developed with the hopes of reducing the vast number of females who leave STEM-related jobs early in their careers and to create long-lasting partnerships that not only affect participants, but also the greater population that will benefit from the societal advances these women create.
