Yenta

Yenta is built to match students with alumni with relevant backgrounds as part of a mentorship program. It matches students with alumni using a variation of the Gale–Shapley algorithm. Then once the preliminary matches have been computed, there's an opportunity for the operator to make adjustments based on attributes that are not fully coded into the multiple choice questions.

Once the matches have been solidified, there's a script to send personalized emails to students, notifying them of their new alumni mentors.

Collecting data

Columns for data/alumni.csv are as follows:

  • Timestamp
  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Email Address
  • Class Year
  • Industry
  • Function
  • Geography
  • How many students are you willing to mentor?
  • Gender
  • Race / Ethnicity
  • Do you identify as LGBT?
  • Do have a military background?
  • Do you have a joint degree?
  • Have you worked in a family business?
  • Is there anything else that is critically important to you?

Columns for data/students.csv are as follows (priorities are collected with matrix radio buttons):

  • Timestamp
  • First Name

  • Geography
  • Gender
  • Race / Ethnicity
