I’ve attended a good number of panel discussions, workshops and other events based on the topic of career advice for women in mathematics. The advisors usually consist of tenured women in math, tenured women with a joint position in both math and some other STEM field, women professors emeritus (retired) in a STEM field, and/or women in academic administrative positions of various types.
The advisees [among which I sit] are usually female junior faculty and grad students, but the advice is good for all genders!
One too many times I thought to myself, “Someone should write a blog about that.”, so here it is. I will start by posting some advice from these sessions that I keep hearing repeated by numerous women wiser than myself. It caught my attention that so many people give the same advice — and it remains poignant every time I hear it. 🙂
Eventually I’ll include posts about job advice or other topics related to getting or holding a job in academia!
