The Mentoring Network for African Women in Academia (MTAWA) is an organization that establishes and builds networks for African women in academia in support of their academic and professional growth and success.  By convening groups of African women professionals, scholars, and students we provide much needed information, mentoring, and support.

Our Mission: To empower African women to succeed in graduate and professional programs through targeted recruitment, mentoring, and career development support.

Our Vision: To increase the number of African women with advanced degrees and improve their representation in key leadership positions across multiple sectors including but not limited to government, academia, industry, civil society, and international organizations.

“You have to stay in school. You have to. You have to get your degree. Because that’s the one thing people can’t take away from you is your education. And it is worth the investment.” Michelle Obama
