to the CWIS Student & Early-Career page! Whether you're a high school
student, a post-doc or a junior faculty, this is the place to find all the CWIS
resources for younger members and to connect with peers and mentors regarding
the student and early-career
New!!! Lifting Up Series -- This is a new feature we are beginning; see the button above. Each LIfting Up story is a short interview of one of our CWIS members. We are lifting up her in her career, and hope to also lift up you by her thoughts and inspiration! Let us know (above) if you have ideas for people to interview, if you want to be interviewed on these six questions yourself, or if you have any comments.
Buddies -- Would you benefit from having a contact to talk to about your own experiences, questions, and concerns as a Christian Woman in Science? While we are not
starting a formal mentoring program for CWIS (we hope to hook up with an
established program in the next few months), we will try to find you someone to
occasionally email with about your questions. Send an email to us (above) with your interest, technical area of study, and any other details important to
you, and we'll try to find someone for you to chat with.
New!!! Dear Mentor Column -- CWIS members are encouraged to go to The Well (a great website for Christian women graduate students run by Intervarsity) and visit their "Dear Mentor" page. You will find answers to lots of questions that Christian women graduate students have submitted already, from the board of mentors The Well has recruited. Several of these mentors are Christian Women in Science! So instead of starting our own Dear Mentor column, we are teaming up with The Well. Visit their website to see what is already posted. You can submit a new question to their website, or email to us at CWIS (above), and we'll work with the folks at The Well to get it answered and posted.
Join us July 26 in Ontario! -- We'll be at the ASA annual conference at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, with great fellowship, a technical session about CWIS topics, and best of all -- a PICNIC together on Saturday! Students get in free or really cheap, and there are scholarships. See the ASA website for more info.
Keep an eye on this page for news about
our upcoming programs and resources and check out this blog post to learn more
about what to expect!
