Mentoring workshop for early career women, gender queer, and non-binary people

Announcing the 2019 Mentoring Workshop for Early-Career Women in Philosophy: June 23 – 25 at Boston University, Boston, MA. Deadline for Applications: February 1, 2019.
Co-Directors: Louise Antony, Juliet Floyd, and Susanne Sreedhar
Supported by the Marc Sanders Foundation, Boston University and the University of Massachusetts.

The Mentoring Program for Early-Career Women in Philosophy aims to promote mentoring relationships between women philosophers in the early stages of their careers and senior women in philosophy. The centerpiece of the program is the Mentoring Workshop, held biennially. Mentees are organizing into small topic-related cohorts and assigned a senior mentor. Meetings at the workshop alternate between “working sessions” — intensive cohort discussions of mentees’ work — and panel discussions on matters of concern to the mentees, such as getting tenure, increasing professional visibility, balancing teaching and research, and dealing with work/life challenges.

Any person identifying as a woman, as non-binary or as gender-queer, who will be employed by Fall of 2019 is welcome to apply. Full information about the program, including application instructions, is available at our webite: http://www.bu.edu/philo/people/faculty/mentoring-project/
