Million Women Mentors – Turkey is an initiative to create a network of mentoring programs supporting female high school students, university students, and young professionals seeking careers in STEM in Turkey. Million Women Mentors – Turkey’s goal is to establish 1 million mentoring connections within 10 years. While the initiative serves female mentees, both male and female mentors are welcome.
