SINOPSIS

This article describes a successful intervention program at the University of Washington, which was implemented to increase the retention and self-confidence and to expand the horizons of women in engineering. The intervention, a one-to-one mentoring program, matches female engineering university students with professional engineers. Coupled with its organizational location within a comprehensive, university-level program for women in engineering, the Mentoring Program is unique in its design, size, student management, marketing, matching of mentors and mentees, training, evaluation, and strong corporate participation.
