OWC-Sponsored Events and Programs for Women
OWC is exploring multiple innovative venues to empower women and to promote professional development by offering seminars, panel discussions, and interactive workshops. We are planning in-house leadership training and will also sponsor selected individuals for external career development training targeted at women in academia. We offer individual consultations and strategic career planning advice. Many of these activities will be developed in conjunction with Faculty Diversity and Development (FDD).
2012-2013 Mentoring Series for Female Graduate Students and Postdocs
OWC and WISMAC will co-sponsor a monthly lunch series to connect trainees with female faculty role models. The speakers will share personal stories about their career paths, and provide insight on a broad range of topics, such as career trajectories, transitioning from postdoc to independent investigator, and balancing family and career. UT Southwestern faculty can read more at MyUTSW.
