MentorNet®, the E-Mentoring Network for Diversity in Engineering and Science, provides on-line mentoring opportunities for its lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer students in the sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The NOGLSTP-MentorNet partnership provides NOGLSTP with a national e-mentoring network that unites academic institution, corporate institution, and scientific and technical professional society mentors with LGBTQ+ college and graduate students, post-doctoral scholars, and early-career faculty through MentorNet’s award-winning One-on-One Mentoring Programs. In addition to offering traditional one-on-one mentoring through the transition of college student to workforce employee, the NOGLSTP Mentoring Project hopes to help its protégés to answer questions unique to the career-bound LGBT community, such as:

  • If /when to come out in an interview?
  • Should one de-gay one’s life at school or work?
  • What companies are gay-friendly?
  • Should I join a student or Employee Resource Group or a professional association like NOGLSTP?
