Mailing Lists

CRA-W Updates

CRA-W Updates is a mailing list specifically for news and announcements about CRA-W activities, programs and awards/scholarships. Be the first to know about upcoming workshops and when applications are open for CRA-W programs.

CRA-W and the Anita Borg Institute partner on a number of programs. One such program is the CRA-W email communities listed below, which are hosted by the Anita Borg Institute. These email communities provide a forum for discussions for people who are at a similar place in their career.

PhdjobhuntHers

PhdjobhuntHers is a moderated mailing list for women who are seeking or starting Ph.D. level jobs in computer science, computer engineering, or information technology in academia, industry, or government laboratories. This is a confusing period; the goal of this mailing list is to enable women undergoing this process to talk to one another. This list is moderated by Rachel Pottinger.

JrProfessHers

JrProfessHers is a moderated mailing list for women faculty in computer science, computer engineering, and information technology who do not yet have tenure. Because being in a new (or relatively new) job and going through the tenure process can be stressful, it can be useful to share experiences with and get advice from other women in the same situation. Some of the topics will likely be specific to women, while others will be more general. This list is moderated by Rachel Pottinger.

ResearcHers

ResearcHers is a mailing list of about three hundred women in computer science, computer engineering or information technology researchers from industry, industrial and government research labs and academia. The list is international, with members from six continents. ResearcHers focuses on issues of women and research. Moderated by A.J.Brush.

ProfessHers

ProfessHers is a moderated mailing list for women faculty members in computer science, computer engineering, and information technology to informally discuss issues related to their jobs and being successful in their careers. Possible topics include aspects of graduate and undergraduate teaching, advising students, research, funding, interactions with colleagues, professional service, time management, promotion, and administrative work, especially for issues that are affected by being a woman or for which the perspectives of other women faculty are desired. This list is for women who hold university or college faculty positions in computer science, computer engineering or information technology. Moderated by Tracy Camp.
