Barbara Smith Women's Mentoring Program

Participation is open to CMWA members who are employed in regular or temporary part-time or full-time appointments of four months or longer. Become a CMWA member today

This staff-to-staff mentoring program is an opportunity to engage with a fellow CMWA member in conversations around professional interests and aspirations including career advancement, educational opportunities, and job-related issues. Women who wish to be mentored will be matched with those volunteering to mentor others based on their experience and needs. This program is intended to be completely voluntary, with no compensation tied to participation. The program is named in honor of Barbara B. Smith, Chief Human Resources Officer at Carnegie Mellon for 22 years before retiring in 2011.
