Women Elevating Women:
In February 2016, the LEW and weVENTURE launched the "Women Elevating Women" Mentoring Program for female students at Florida Tech. This program provides female students the opportunity to engage in purposeful networking with professional business women and leaders from our community who can provide insight into the diverse world of business. Students are matched with a LEW member who has a related professional background to their field of study, and over the course of a semester, attend individual mentoring sessions and select group networking opportunities.
