Mentoring-for-Leadership Lunches

The Mentoring-for-Leadership Lunch programis a leadership development program for women faculty in STEM. It features a different woman leader each month who talks about her career path and the benefits and challenges of her position.  In addition to featuring women leaders, once a quarter we also address a leadership topic of interest to our audience. Past topics include Transitioning to Leadership Roles in your Community and Salary Negotiations.

This forum for informal mentoring encourages women faculty to consider positions of academic leadership. Lunches are offered monthly September – June. Since 2003, we have featured more than 100 women leaders, including center directors, chairs, and deans.
