RE: OCTOBER 8 UF WiSE MEET & GREET
UF Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) will host a mentoring meet-and-greet between graduate students, postdocs and faculty members from 11:45 a.m to 1:15 p.m. on Friday, October 8, 2010 in Room 107 of the Marston Science Library on campus.
Bess de Farber, UF Libraries Grants Manager, will be there to facilitate CoLab activities that encourage discussion among students and mentors.
This event aims to help students (1) identify potential faculty mentors in their respective fields, and (2) feel comfortable approaching the mentors that they have identified for academic or personal advice in the future.
Space is limited, so please RSVP to April Hayward ([log in to unmask]) by Monday, October 4, 2010 if you are interested in participating or have questions.
The UF WiSE initiative is a grass-roots directed program of discussions, workshops, and networking events designed to foster the success of women and other members of under-represented groups at all stages of their careers in science and engineering by providing a forum for academic and personal guidance and support. ALL members of the academic community are welcome at its events -- female or male.
