Mentoring retreat run by the Women’s Committee is organised for early career female lecturers and advanced female PhD students based in the UK. From 2021 the mentoring retreat has switched to an online event with face-to-face virtual interactions between early career female researchers and senior female academics.
As of 2021, the Mentoring Retreat will consist of both plenary and small group online sessions. The plenary sessions will cover career development focusing on progression and promotion and networking and a discussion of career experiences. The small group sessions will see participants grouped by similar research areas discussing their papers and receiving feedback and advice from their mentors. There will also be informal networking sessions for participants to chat with all mentors and each other.
