The Women in Tech Mentorship Program strives to promote diversity and inclusion in computer programming. Participants work closely with BeSmartee employees to develop essential skills that help them thrive in their careers.
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., May 31, 2022 — BeSmartee, an award-winning software provider and founder of digital mortgage platforms, is thrilled to commend the Women in Tech Scholarship awardees on their remarkable achievement and successful completion of the mentorship program. Coordinated in partnership with LearningFuze development boot camp and coding school, the mentorship program started in 2020 with the aim to support women pursuing careers in programming.
Lyn Kim and Lindsey Laveirge, this year’s scholarship winners, completed a 14-week intensive course on web development. Each paired with one of BeSmartee’s software developers, who worked closely with them throughout the course of the program.
Attending LFZ was one of the toughest and most rewarding learning experiences I've ever had,” said Kim. “I've acquired so many valuable skills during my time here and feel prepared for the job market! I appreciate BeSmartee and LFZ for supporting my career-changing journey, and am grateful for LFZ team and my mentors for this program. Having mentors, who’ve already navigated changes in their own careers, guide me through mine was immensely encouraging. I feel empowered to become a future mentor pay forward everything I've received through this opportunity.
BeSmartee mentor Matt Geller, a LearningFuze alumni himself, said “mentoring is an immensely rewarding experience. Meeting with my mentees was always the highlight of my week. It was impressive to witness their progress from week to week. Lindsey went from learning call functions to designing and implementing her own full-stack application. Lyn’s journey to becoming a developer was equally impressive.”
Geller went on to say how much the program benefits both mentors and mentees. “As a mentor, I was in the unique position to offer advice tailored specifically to what my mentees were going through at the time. Having the opportunity to not only impart my hard-earned knowledge but also to do it in a way that allows for a personal touch has helped me to grow as a person."
The mentorship program is built upon BeSmartee’s core company values and inspires attendees to be fearless, committed, excellent and selfless in the pursuit of their careers.
When I first spoke with Lindsey and Lyn, I knew they'd be outstanding students at LearningFuze and great mentees for the Women In Tech Mentorship program. A mentorship is as valuable as what you put into it, and I'm happy to see that they both put in their absolute best. The passion, commitment, and optimism they demonstrated during the program speaks volumes about their future, which is no doubt bright and full of opportunities," said BeSmartee mentorship program leader and lead UX engineer Mark Martinez.
