Accountability groups are peer mentoring groups of 3-4 people that are focused on working together to encourage each other to accomplish specific goals (such as passing qualifying exams, writing your first paper, giving a presentation at a conference, etc.). Your group will help hold you accountable for accomplishing your goals, and will help you by giving feedback on your progress and advice for what to do next. GWISE will match groups, provide professional development materials and opportunities, and check in with the groups periodically to ensure that you're happy with how things are going. We will host an Accountability group kick off event in the last week of September, and a final celebration at the end of the year.
By signing up for an accountability group, you are agreeing to:
**Attend the kick-off event September 12th (7pm)
**Keep anything discussed with your group confidential
**Meet with your group regularly (an average of once a month)
You are expected to commit to your group for the entire 2013-2014 academic year. We have limited spots in the program, so please register only if you strongly wish to join a group and work together to accomplish your goals!
*For those who only want peer editing of written work/assignments/papers, there will be a separate group running these sessions. You don't need to fill out this application.
