WGS Mentorship Program

The NeMLA Women's and Gender Studies Caucus (WGSC) operates an interdisciplinary mentoring program which pairs senior faculty mentors with junior faculty and doctoral students. 

The WGS Mentorship Meeting

An informal breakfast meeting for current and prospective mentors and mentees is featured at the annual NeMLA convention. This marks the beginning of a year-long mentoring and professional relationship.

The WGSC Business Meeting follows the Mentoring Meeting and includes suggestions for future speakers and topics at NeMLA conferences, as well as the nominations for Caucus officer positions.
