WEBS: symposium for early career female biologists

WEBS (Women Evolving Biological Sciences) is an annual three-day symposium
aimed at addressing the retention of female scientists and issues related to
the transition of women from early career stages to tenure track positions
and leadership roles in academic and research settings. Past WEBS symposium
in 2007, 2008, and 2010 were huge successes. Early career participants as
well as our senior scientist panelists reported feeling inspired and
equipped with new connections and tools that they expect will help them in
their career in the years to come. We would appreciate your assistance in
passing along this information to any of your colleagues who you think will
be interested in our program.

WEBS targets early career women in the Biological Sciences with an emphasis
on ecology and evolutionary biology. In particular, it focuses on women who
have earned their doctoral degrees within the past two to eight years and
who do not have tenure in order to address the critical transition period
from graduate studies and post-doctoral positions to permanent research and
teaching positions.

The symposium will provide a forum for professional development, including
awareness and improvement of academic leadership skills; opportunities to
establish mentoring relationships; and resources for developing professional
networks. The 2011 symposium will be held at NESCent (National Evolutionary
Synthesis Center) in Durham, NC from November 6 -9, 2011.
