On January 11, 2012, the Yale Women Faculty Forum (WFF) launched an informal mentoring program for women faculty at Yale. WFF introduced the program by hosting a breakfast at the Provost’s house and an afternoon session about mentoring best practices facilitated by Lindsey Stoddard Cameron, a mentoring expert from UW-Madison. The new WFF program matches junior faculty members with senior faculty mentors in related fields, and provides a framework for mentor-mentee engagement.
The program is designed to supplement departmental mentoring programs and provide junior women faculty with an additional resource as they progress toward tenure or other career advancement. Over 75 women faculty members are participating in this pilot program. The program is closed for the 2012 cycle; for additional information about the program and to learn about participating in the future, please contact the Women Faculty Forum at email@example.com
