All are invited to GWAN’s Women in Academia Career Panel featuring female professors at different stages of their careers, from both the sciences and humanities. This event is hosted in collaboration with the Chemistry of Life Processes Institute and The Women’s Center at Northwestern University.
This panel will focus on two topics: (1) How to develop a successful academic career, especially in male-dominated fields, and (2) Available tools and resources successful women can use to achieve work-life balance. The first hour will be dedicated to a formal panel, and the second hour will be a casual mix and mingle over coffee and snacks.
We hope this panel will help break down some of the perceived and actual barriers that contribute to the attrition of graduate women (across all fields) from pursuing academic careers.
Current Panelists include: TGS Dean Teresa Woodruff, Emily Weiss (Chemistry), Neda Bagheri (Engineering), Ginger Pennington (Psychology), and others.Continue reading →
