The Institute for African-American Mentoring in Computing Sciences (IAAMCS) is seeking exceptional mentors that can significantly impact the lives and future careers of aspiring students. Their mentoring program aims to provide African American students with invaluable guidance, encouragement, and resources to thrive in the computing industry. Mentors will leverage their expertise, experiences, and leadership to collectively address the underrepresentation of African Americans in computer science and create lasting change.
The goal of the program is to provide culturally responsive 1-on-1 and group mentoring to:
- Encourage participants by engaging in IAAMCS community,
- Empower mentees to pursue their academic, research, and industry careers with confidence,
- Facilitate matching between mentors with a wealth of knowledge, experience, and expertise, and mentees who are eager to take active roles in their journey.
- Graduate students who participated in IAAMCS activities and are interested in mentoring undergraduates,
- Faculty members with a focus in computing,
- Leaders in the tech industry.
