ADVANCE is pleased to offer a Mentoring-for-Leadership Lunch on Tuesday, September 22 at 12:15 PM - 1:30 PM, in Loew 355 on the topic Nominating Women for Awards. Lunch will be served.

The goal of this MfL lunch is to discuss ways in which we can increase the number of women faculty nominated for local and national awards. Topics will include the benefits to departments and colleges for their faculty to receive such recognition and the importance of women faculty actively nominating each other. We will also discuss how to find and identify awards to apply for, and the most efficient ways to submit nominations. Professor Eve Riskin will lead the discussion and all attendees will be able to participate with their own experiences, suggestions, and thoughts.
