Small Group Mentoring Program
CU-ADVANCE is happy to announce a new Small Group Mentoring Program. The Small Group Mentoring Program (SGMP) is designed to bring together 3-9 women faculty in STEM or SBS who share an interest in a broad topic, a discipline or disciplinary group (e.g., “engineering”), or even a career stage (assistant or associate professor). The goal is to move the group members’ careers forward by providing mentorship and support on issues relevant to a member of the professoriate. An emphasis will be placed on sharing best practices and tools to achieve positive outcomes. For more information, see Small Group Mentoring Program.
