Athena in Action: A Networking and Mentoring Workshop for Graduate Student Women in Philosophy brings together a group of graduate students with a group of women faculty mentors for three days of substantive philosophical discussion and professional advice sessions. Participants benefit from getting to know the other talented graduate students and the faculty members, and from hearing the mentors’ advice on topics of interest to women in the profession. Our goal is to create a workshop at which high-level philosophical conversation occurs and great advice is offered. Participants will benefit from making connections with other talented philosophy students, getting to know the faculty mentors, and hearing the mentors´ advice on thriving as a woman in philosophy. While the workshop may be particularly useful to those who identify as women, people of any gender identity, including non-binary, queer and trans people, are welcome to apply.

We are committed to accommodating all participants with disabilities.

The fifth workshop will take place at the University of Notre Dame from June 17-21, 2024.
