180 Days to Make a Difference

Deloitte and I Wish have designed an exciting Mentorship Programme for I Wish Alumnae who are currently studying STEM-related third-level courses.  The aim of the programme is to provide support and guidance to female students that are in STEM-related courses as they navigate through their third level journey.Mentors and Mentees meet!

The programme kicked off in October with a meet and greet session between the Mentors and the Mentees – thanks to the team at Deloitte Ireland for making this happen and to all the mentors for sharing such inspirational stories. The I Wish team is thrilled to see our alumnae receive encouragement and guidance from such fantastic role models.


How the Mentorship programme works

“180 Days to Make a Difference” is a six-month programme during which mentees and mentors will meet at intervals that suit each individual pair. Over the course of the six months, each mentee will have the opportunity to meet with their mentor for four to six sessions.

Mentees on the programme will also gain access to an exclusive network of peers allowing them to share experiences and learn from other mentees on the programme.

There will also be virtual workshops provided by experts across the business on areas such as CV and cover letters, Business Chemistry sessions and the opportunity to hear from senior leaders in STEM in the business and how they made it to where they are today.
