Mentoring-in-a-Box: Women Faculty in Computing

Women in scientific disciplines face challenges that range from institutionalized bias to differences in communication styles and a lack of female role models. Mentoring-in-a-Box: Women Faculty in Computing can help you start and sustain a successful mentoring relationship. This Box is designed to help pre-tenure faculty women prepare for the next stage of their careers, and to help them look ahead to positions of accomplishment and influence. Mentoring-in-a-Box: Women Faculty in Computing addresses the challenges of the computer science faculty experience by providing practical activities, resources, and templates that a mentor and mentee can use right away.
