What is When and Where I Enter...*: Unlocking the Door for Women of Color in STEMM?
When and Where I Enter… is A FORWARD to Professorship Workshop specifically targeting pre-tenure and senior graduate students in STEMM fields who are women of color (African-, Latina- and Native-American) in the Midwest, where these populations are often academically and socially isolated. The workshop will support the advancement of this target group in STEMM fields in the professorate through the training of women at the postdoctoral and junior faculty levels in the areas of teaching, service and scholarly activity. A significant dimension of this two-day workshop will be a focus on the fusion of productive and healthy professional and personal development for women of color.
In an effort to make this conference affordable to all eligible early career female scientists:
When and Where I Enter… is a program of the Catharine S. Eberly Center for Women at The University of Toledo and is funded by a National Science Foundation ADVANCE Leadership Award through George Washington and Gallaudet Universities.
This two-day workshop will present vital strategies and skills to facilitate the initialization and maintenance of successful careers in STEMM disciplines for Women of Color. This venue will also allow for open and honest conversation on the barriers Women of Color encounter as they navigate careers in STEMM disciplines. There is no cost to attend this workshop.
