Subject: Seminar on Navigating the Academic Pathway on Feb 5

Hi everyone,

The life of an academician has changed dramatically in the last two decades.  Although women face unique challenges in academia, the fact remains that this career path has become increasingly difficult at all rank.  Relevant to both genders, the purpose of this seminar is to highlight these challenges and discuss ways to navigate the process.  Key features of the seminar include (i) identification of how the academic path has changed in the last two decades; (ii) discussion of how to address key issues associated with beginning an academic career; (iii) the challenges in managing work-life balance; and (iv) ways to sustain an academic career for the long haul. There will be some discussion of the unique challenges faced by women in science, who are notoriously underrepresented in the academic world.  Peppered with Dr. Jaykus' personal experiences and a few pieces of advice, the hope is that the audience will be willing to engage in dialogue that will promote the success of academicians at all phases of their careers.
