The Women’s Mentoring Network is proud to offer an additional topic in the Coffee Conversation Series.

Registration will be limited to 10 women (faculty and staff) per conversation to allow for meaningful dialogue. If there is interest that exceeds capacity, we can explore adding more dates.  Additionally, if there is a new topic that you would like to host, please email Julie Dorsey (jdorsey@ithaca.edu) to discuss details.

All conversations are held at the Center for Faculty Excellence, 316 Gannett. Registration for all events can be found here.

Dual Career Couples in Higher Ed: April 19, 12-1pm
Hosted by Jess Shapiro
Many women are part of dual-career couples with both people working in higher education, either as faculty or staff.  We will discuss the unique set of challenges and opportunities that come with this, whether or not both individuals work at Ithaca College.

Purpose of the Women’s Mentoring Network: to enable faculty and staff who identify as women at Ithaca College to connect in meaningful ways to support their goals.
