Chicago Collaboration for Women in STEM
What is the Collaboration?
Northwestern University and the University of Chicago have entered into a three-year partnership for the advancement of women faculty in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines at our institutions. Through joint programs and research projects, we aim to:
- identify local obstacles our women faculty see to success in the sciences
- encourage women to be deliberate and purposeful in planning their careers
- open women’s eyes to leadership possibilities
- create and expand women’s networks
- develop model programs and policies for the academy
- We are pleased to announce the launch of a new research networking portal geared specifically toward women faculty in the STEM fields at Northwestern University, University of Chicago, and Argonne and Fermi national labs. Developed in collaboration with the Elsevier Foundation and publicly accessible, this portal provides an easily searchable database to quickly identify opportunities for collaboration with women faculty and scientists in the Chicago region.
- Planning is underway for the second 1 1/2 day Career Development and Leadership Retreat. This year's retreat will provide interactive sessions on a variety of topics, including the Art of Negotiating, How to Mentor, Media Interview Techniques, and much more. Attendance at this retreat is by invitation only.
