AAPA COD Women’s Initiative awarded Elsevier New Scholars grant

The AAPA’s Committee on Diversity (COD) has made increasing diversity within physical anthropology a priority. We are pleased to announce that the COD Women’s Initiative Co-chairs Robin Bernstein (University of Colorado, Boulder) and Andrea Taylor (Duke University) have received a grant through the Elsevier Foundation New Scholars Program to create a self-sustaining infrastructure administered by the AAPA to improve the environment for all women physical anthropologists. This two-year grant will support career development initiatives including domestic and international career development workshops, and the creation of sustainable toolkits and webinars that can be easily accessed and widely shared in order to initiate and continue conversations about strategic career planning and work-life satisfaction.
