Women’s Mentorship Event (co-sponsored with the Women’s Caucus)

Please join us on Friday, November 10 at 9:00-10:30am for the Annual GECC Women’s Mentorship Event. Sponsored for the first time in conjunction with the Women’s Caucus, this informal roundtable features a handful of invited women scholars in the History of Science, Technology and Medicine. With both facilitation from GECC Mentorship Officers and ample time for questions from participants, we aim to create a safe space to discuss issues that female-identifying persons in the field deal with on a day-to-day basis, from work-life balance, sexism and negotiating the job market, to mentorship, professionalization and career development.


This year’s panelists include:

Aileen Fyfe (University of St. Andrews, Scotland)

Ruby Heap (University of Ottawa, Canada)

Sally Kohlstedt (University of Minnesota, USA)

Megan Raby (University of Texas-Austin, USA)

Myrna Perez Sheldon (Ohio University, USA)

Adelheid Voskuhl (University of Pennsylvania, USA)


Please RSVP to Kris Palmieri by November 5 at kpalmieri@uchicago.edu.


For more information, contact Kris and check the Meeting Program for the Women’s Caucus Breakfast. The event will be held immediately following the breakfast in the same location.
