A Workshop for Women Biological Anthropologists: Mentoring and Work-Life Satisfaction

A Workshop for Women Biological Anthropologists: Mentoring and Work-Life Satisfaction
Saturday, March 25, 2017 – 9am-5:30pm at Santa Clara University, California

Facilitated by: Donna J. Dean, Ph.D. and Cindy Simpson, M.Ed, CAE Association for Women in Science (AWIS)
This day-long workshop will be based on material that the Association for Women in Science (AWIS) has developed for and delivered to STEM women groups, both academic and non-academic. The AAPA Committee on Diversity’s Women’s Initiative has offered workshops at the AAPA meetings over the past three years for women biological anthropologists at different career stages. AWIS has customized and combined two of their nationally recognized workshops (on mentoring and work-life satisfaction) to address those issues identified by prior AAPA workshop participants as being especially important to women biological anthropologists.

We welcome participants at all ranks, graduate students to full professors. With support from the Elsevier Foundation, we are able to offer some funds to assist in attending this workshop (all paid on a reimbursement basis). Most awards will be $200 or less, but all requests are considered.

Registration is free, limited to 30 participants, and closes on March 1, 2017 or when full. Food and drinks are free.
