We built Glassbreakers in order to make mentorship for women a lot easier and more accessible. Would love feedback on the user experience and on boarding to see if we make the concept of 'peer mentorship' clear enough to users. We're accepting beta users on a rolling basis for women in technology.

@benparr we're so excited to have you on board :)
Hey there. Love the idea. FWIW, I started the sign-up process and have some suggestions...it would be great if finance was one of the interests. I would also like the sign-up process to be easier. You just asked for my LinkedIn profile - AWESOME! But now I've had to abandon the sign-up process, because I do not have time to write the paragraphs that you've asked for. I want those paragraphs to be thoughtful, the site deserves that. :-) I'll definitely come back to it - its a great idea!
Thanks @corley for the suggestions. We conducted a lot of UX testing and found that people wanted to include areas on her profile that were specific to her Glassbreaker profile, since it's used a bit differently than LinkedIn. Women wanted to be more personal on GB since it's a private, safe network. Thanks for all of the upvotes. We love Product Hunt :)
I also should ask - what was your inspiration for doing this?
