The First SMS Women’s Networking Breakfast will be an opportunity to engage in discussions with leading female scholars on a variety of career issues, including negotiations, leadership, work-life balance, sexual harassment, promotions, teaching, balancing teaching/research/service, navigating international careers, etc. The breakfast will be structured with table leaders facilitating conversations in a rotating round table format. Participants are encouraged to bring questions, stories, and their own experiences to share over breakfast. Our goal is to create an environment that invites connection and community and that helps to overcome the barriers based on gender, geography, career stage, etc. that too often separate us as scholars and people. All are welcome, but pre-registration below is required for planning purposes.
Topics will include, but are not limited to:
job negotiations, leadership, work-life balance, sexual harassment, promotions, teaching, balancing teaching/research/service, navigating international careers, scholarly career paths and moves, and more.
The SMS Fellows will be hosting breakfast roundtables to provide an opportunity to engage in discussions with leading scholars on a variety of research topics. In the conference breakfast room, there will be designated tables arranged by topic where SMS participants can join SMS Fellows in a scholarly discussion. All are welcome. First-come, first served. Additional information will be available soon.
