Introducing The Advanced Women of Color (AWC) Site
The Advanced Women of Color (AWC) site is launching and invites you to sign
up. AWC is designed to provide women of color holding Ph.D.s a place to
share ideas, wisdom, experience and questions – anonymously if they wish –
as well as seek collaborations and opportunities discreetly. It was built
with support from an ADVANCE grant of the National Science Foundation,
adapting the principles of MentorNet, the award-winning nonprofit program
for mentoring women in engineering and science.
AWC also invites more senior and experienced women who would be willing to
act as mentors and answer questions posed by members of the community. If
you would like to nominate someone to fill these roles or are willing to do
so yourself, please let me know at at ljennings at mentornet.net.
