Career Development

The Career Development Committee helps support the professional development of feminist sociologists at all stages of their careers.

 

What We Do

Workshops:

We offer workshops at the Winter & Summer meetings. We regularly offer “Critique Me” sessions in which seasoned sociologists review job application materials.  Additionally, recent workshops have included: finding and succeeding in non-academic employment; gender and service in the academy; teaching portfolios for tenure/promotion and job applications; developing materials for the job market; going up for full professor; and giving a good job talk. If you have an idea for a workshop, please contact the CDC.

Laura Kramer, CDC Chair: lkramerphd@gmail.com

 

Hey Jane! Publication:

We produce Hey Jane! – an “advice column” for feminist sociologists. Recent issues of Hey Jane! have addressed grant seeking, job talks, and negotiating service obligations.

Mentoring:

We also are in charge of Professional Needs Mentoring, matching junior and senior feminists who can learn from one another. Click for more information and application instructions.
