Early Career Mentoring Workshops


Are you in the early stages of your career, working in academia, industry or at a government lab? Are you interested in interacting with senior women in your field?

If so, participate in one of our Career Mentoring Workshops!

– The most recent Early Career Mentoring Workshop for Early CMW Research and Early CMW Lab took place on November 3-4 in Phoenix, Arizona.

UPDATE: We will no longer be hosting a Career Mentoring Workshop for Early CMW Education before SIGCSE 2019. Please check back for updates on future workshops.

When you attend an Early Career Mentoring Workshop, you will learn: how to build a great research program, advise students and get funding, how to be an effective and inspiring teacher, how to set yourself up for promotion and success, and how to balance work and life, among other things.

CRA-W offers three different types of Early Career Mentoring Workshops for participants who are:

  • Early CMW Research –  in their early stages of a research career in academia.
  • Early CMW Lab – in their early stages of a research career in an industry or government research lab.
  • Early CMW Education –  in their early stages of a career in teaching and undergraduate education.
