Description

Hello Dublin!

The objective of the Girls in tech mentorship program, Stepping Up, is to build and foster an organic community promoting good mentorship. This will NOT be a typical mentorship program, there will be no match making, instead we will focus on substance to bring you the knowledge & tools to approach mentorship; access to mentors whom they can learn from; and with inspirational stories to pave their journey.
