Faculty Mentoring Program
Pandemic Faculty Mentoring Program
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, women’s research and scholarly output have been deeply impacted. Submissions to academic journals decreased and those particularly affected are women of color who are junior faculty. In fact, the pandemic poses a significant challenge for academia as it seems to not only exacerbate the already existing gender disparities, but also undermine the gender equity progress made over the past few decades.
As an intervention, the Gender+ Justice Initiative is launching a Pandemic Faculty Mentoring Program that consists of pairing Georgetown senior faculty with junior faculty who work on similar issues across campuses and disciplines.
The Pandemic Faculty Mentoring Program provides:
- exchange and collaboration between scholars working on similar issues
- practical advice on dealing with personal and academic challenges
- support for junior faculty in challenging times
Mentors: Senior faculty who seek to share their academic and personal experiences with junior faculty. Please note: the mentors will receive tools and resources to facilitate their mentoring.
Mentees: Junior faculty who seek to develop supportive relationships with senior faculty and learn from their academic and personal experiences. Please note: the mentees will receive tools and resources to facilitate their mentoring.
Frequency: We recommend that mentor and mentee schedule 2 to 3 (30-60min) virtual lunch or coffee meetings per semester.
Timeline: The program accepts applications on an ongoing basis. Matches will be made based on academic interests.
