MPOWIR is currently enrolling new members in mentor groups. Groups consist of 6-7 junior women and 2 senior facilitators, meeting monthly via conference call. Groups offer coaching, advice, and strategies for professional success. This opportunity is open to all female physical oceanographers in the last two years of a U.S. PhD program, in a post-doctoral position, or an associate level position.
Here’s what past participants have to say about groups:
- “I have gotten a lot of good advice from my mentor and peers. Also, it is really nice to know that there are other people who are in similar positions.”
- “Getting to know each other over a considerable amount of time during the transition years from graduate school to a permanent position.”
- “I’ve progressed/grown over the past few years and the way that I view my career status is a great measure of the success of the program.”
