Mentoring

Graduate Student Mentoring
NWSA provides a graduate mentorship program as a professional development opportunity for graduate students going on the job market, both academic and non-academic. Graduate students can sign up for 45-minute one-on-one meetings in which they can bring their cover letters and CV or resume to get feedback on those documents from a person employed in the field of women's and gender studies. 


Mentoring Sessions will take place during this year's conference in Atlanta on Friday, November 9 at times that will be assigned based on availability of mentors and mentees. Pairs can also arrange to meet at a different time if both members prefer and make separate arrangements once they are matched. We will do our best to match applicants to mentors based on the information and interests provided to us.

This program is coordinated by the Program Administration and Development Committee.
