Mentoring Workshop for Early-Career Women @ OCIS 2020
Early-career women scholars in an Australian context face dual challenges of the well-documented impacts of structural gendered inequality, and systemic issues in higher education including increased casualisation, growing pressure for PhDs to complete in three to four years, and the need to develop a publication record to be competitive. This workshop aims to bring together a group of early career scholars with more established women working in international studies in Australia and the region to develop strategies, share resources, and build mentoring networks.
The workshop, supported by the ANU Gender Institute, will be held on Sunday 6 December 2020 (the day before the OCIS conference commences). The draft schedule is as follows (subject to change):
9.00-9.30: Welcome/ setting the scene and tone
9.30-11.00: Navigating academia
11.00-11.30: Morning tea
11.30-1.00: Getting published
1.00-2.00: Lunch with small-group mentoring discussion
2.00-3.30: Applying for jobs
3.30-4.00: Afternoon tea
4.30-5.30: Panel ask & answer session

The workshop will be held on the ANU campus in Canberra. Participants must be able to attend the full day. Registration is free but spaces are limited. Accommodation for participants travelling from outside of Canberra will be provided for the previous night (Saturday 5 December 2020).
