AWM Workshop Women Graduate Students and Recent PhDsAugust 3, 2005
I'm writing to urge you to apply for the upcoming workshop for Women Graduate Students and Recent PhDs (if you are eligible), and to encourage your friends who are eligible to apply.
More and more, I'm convinced that workshops like these can make a real difference to women's careers. I just came back from two workshops, and the enthusiasm from the junior participants was overwhelming. The mentors and panelists got a lot out of it, too. Participating in something like this at an early stage of one's career can be helpful and encouraging to graduate students and recent PhDs. Please think about someone who might benefit from this opportunity and ask them to fill out the simple application, as instructed on the AWM web page: http://www.awm-math.org/workshops.html#joint2006.
The deadline of September 1 is soon, and we need to adhere to it in order to get the information into the meeting program. These workshops are supported by generous grants from NSA and ONR --help our young people take advantage of them.
