EAP Workshop: Women in Academia: The Joys and Challenges of Graduate School

Author: Lisa Oglesbee

As in most other socioeconomic spheres, women in academia tend to face greater challenges than their male counterparts. This workshop, led by Belen Vicens, is designed to introduce international graduate students to the state of academia from the point of view of gender. Tenure rates, wage gaps, sexual harassment, and the so-called “Baby Penalty” will be discussed with an eye towards striking the right the balance between desired outcomes and realistic expectations.
