Women and Academia: Surviving the Dissertation
A Dissertation Support Group for Women Women in academia frequently feel isolated when confronting the hurdles that can interfere with the successful completion of the dissertation and transitioning into early career professionals. This group will provide a space for women to build a supportive network and to discuss issues that are particular to women in various stages of the dissertation process. Meetings will open dialogue around multiple aspects of personal identity (e.g., race, class, orientation, ability, etc) that intersect with gender during this process and aim to help women in academia find and use their voice. Members will also use the group to identify tangible weekly goals, to share their victories, and to discuss personal challenges with group support and feedback. Facilitated by Mamta Dadlani, PhD
