Mentoring: deadline approaching!

The Mentoring Project for Pre-tenure Women Faculty in Philosophy

There is mounting evidence that mentoring is important for success in academia. The Mentoring Project aims to build long-term mentoring relationships between eminent senior women and junior women in the field of philosophy.

Following a successful model developed by women in economics, the Mentoring Project will kick off with a three-day workshop involving small-group intensive working sessions interspersed with plenary panel discussions on professional development and work/life issues.

If you would like to apply, please send your CV and an abstract of the paper you will discuss with your networking group as outlined above to both directors listed below, by Monday April 4, 2011. Please include “Mentoring Project” in the subject line.
