The Mentoring Project

A Mentoring Workshop for Non-Tenured Women in Philosophy

There is mounting evidence that mentoring is important for success in academia. Women are underrepresented in the profession of philosophy, particularly at the senior and tenured levels of academia. The Mentoring Project aims to build long-term mentoring relationships between eminent senior women and junior women in the field of philosophy.

The Mentoring Project conducted its inaugural workshop in 2011 following a model designed by women in the American Economics Association, which has proven remarkably successful. The 2015 workshop was the third biennial philosophers Mentoring Project. Visit The University of Kansas Department of Philosophy Website for more information.

The Workshops are co-directed by Professors Louise Anthony and Ann Cudd.
