The 2015 CRA-W Grad Cohort Workshop was in San Francisco, CA on April 10-11, 2015
The CRA-W Grad Cohort program, initiated in 2004, is generously funded by sponsors from industry, academia, the National Science Foundation, and the computing community. Grad Cohort aims to increase the ranks of senior women in computing by building and mentoring nationwide communities of women through their graduate studies.
At the Grad Cohort Workshop, we welcome new women graduate students in their first year of graduate school into the community of computing researchers and professionals by providing them with a broad range of strategies and role models. Strategies and mentoring for students in their second and third years of graduate school will also be provided.
Students will meet for two days with 20 to 25 senior computing researchers and professionals, who will share pertinent information on graduate school survival skills, as well as more personal information and insights about their experiences. The rewards of a research career will be emphasized. The workshop will include a mix of formal presentations and informal discussions and social events. Through this workshop, students will be able to build mentoring relationships and develop peer networks that will form the basis for ongoing activities during their graduate careers.
Reasonable travel expenses, meals, and lodging will be provided for students chosen to participate in this program.
