Creating supportive spaces for a diversity of women within academia is an ongoing process that involves personal and political action at a variety of scales.

- Life Beyond the Department: Publishing; Work/Life Balance; Career Track; Outreach; Networking
These are merely suggested topics; we welcome any and all contributions.
Balancing on the Academic Ladder will consist of workshops as well as panel sessions to encourage the generation and exchange of creative ideas and strategies. Send paper abstracts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
