WFF Interdepartmental Mentoring Program

Rena Seltzer, academic coach
Friday, September 8, 2017
As part of our efforts to support women faculty at Yale, The WFF is again sponsoring a mentorship program piloted by former WFF Chair Priya Natarajan in 2012. This program had a positive impact on a number of junior faculty by providing them with a senior mentor from outside their department who could offer advice, support, and other assistance outside of the context of an evaluative relationship. Spearheading its return are WFF Chair Paula Kavathas and WFF members Priya Natarajan and Amy Wrzesniewski.
A formal start to the program will occur on September 8th, 2017, with a mentoring workshop by Rena Seltzer, academic leadership coach and author of The Coach’s Guide for Women Professors. Thereafter, the twenty mentorship pairs will meet informally.
