Networking Group for Faculty Women

The Networking Group for Faculty Women was formed in September 2012 in response to a request from faculty women. The group is open to all women faculty (full and part-time, tenure and non-tenure track) and will meet monthly to discuss topics of interest to faculty women. Topics/activities will be determined by the group and attendees will take turns leading discussions.

Topics of Discussion:

A preliminary list of interests and discussion topics was created by asking for suggestions from attendees at the first NGFW meeting (September 2012), followed by an online survey.
