What is FORWARD in SEM?

Focus on Reaching Women for Academics, Research and Development in Science, Engineering and Mathematics is a joint program of the George Washington and Gallaudet Universities funded by a National Science Foundation ADVANCE leadership award. This workshop is provided for women and minorities who may be considering, or are currently in, a tenure track position in science, engineering or mathematics.

The two 1/2 day workshop will focus on skills, strategies and "insider information" necessary to obtain a tenure-track position, to succeed in one and advance to other positions of leadership. This is also an opportunity to network and meet peers. There is no cost to attend this workshop.
