CRA-W is pleased to announce the 2012 CAPP Advanced Career Mentoring Workshop which will be held November 16-17, 2012 in San Francisco, CA.  The goal of the workshop is to increase the percentage of Computer Science and Engineering women faculty members and researchers/technologists who reach the top of their respective career tracks: faculty members by being promoted to full professor and researchers/technologists in industrial or governmental labs by being promoted to the top of their institution's technical ladder or by entering upper management.


As with previous years, the cornerstone of the CAPP workshop will be the involvement of senior women, appointed as CRA-W Distinguished Professors or Researchers, who will actively participate in the program as role models, mentors, and advisers to the cohort. The project will build a community of associate professors and senior lab/industry researchers, providing them with mentoring, leadership training, encouragement, and ongoing peer-support activities.

Workshop registration is now closed. The deadline to apply for the workshop was October 10, 2012.
