Wednesday, April 13, 2016 – Atlanta, GA, 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
Luncheon open to all participants: 12:00pm - 1:00pm (food provided)    

This workshop will focus on the challenges and opportunities faced by graduate student physical anthropologists and offer practical tools and resources to help women scholars in the early stages of their careers strategically navigate their paths forward. As part of this workshop, participants will hear from colleagues who will present their personal stories, describe their career paths, and address issues of work-life balance from their perspectives. Participants will also take part in a speed-mentoring session, and have the opportunity for small-group interactions with mentors in areas of publication and grant support. Participation in the workshop will involve interactive activities and require some advance preparation. Participants are expected to attend the entire session.

Registration deadline is February 1, 2016. Enrollment is free and limited to a maximum of 30 participants. In order to participate, you must be currently enrolled in a graduate program. Scroll down to access the registration form.

 Acceptance emails and further details on the workshop will be sent in late February.
