Graduate Women's Gatherings-Graduate Education - Carnegie Mellon University

Graduate Women's Gatherings

The Graduate Women’s Gatherings are opportunities to meet that focus on issues of particular concern to graduate women. Women in academia face distinct challenges. This is particularly true for women in the sciences and technical fields, where they have been, and remain, under-represented. The Graduate Women’s Gather­ings are designed to address graduate women’s issues.

Based on the popularity of last year's series on professional confidence, this year's gatherings will continue to focus on professionalism. They will alternate between seminar talks, interactive workshops, and networking lunches. Women faculty, administrators, and students will speak to their own experiences professionalizing, what has been most and least useful to them. They will share stories about succeeding in academia. Programs will provide an opportunity for all women graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, administrators and faculty members to share ideas and experiences on topics ranging from professional collaboration to relationship with advisors to negotiation.

All participants must pre-register for each event.  Email invitations for registration are sent to students in advance and close two days before the event. 

If you are not receiving the emails, please email to be added to the list.
