“I would invite anyone considering Struct Scholars to get a taste of the types of mentors you could gain through our community channels and the WIFA Membership Directory - the depth and breadth of these professionals are astonishing, and the list is long,” said Polack. “We cannot wait to highlight five inspiring women in a big way and help make sure they are equipped to make an even bigger difference.”
