OWISM CV Review Program
The OWISM continues to provide CV review for senior Associate Professors who anticipate promotion to Full Professor in the next 2 years. We encourage you to participate in this unique process, and get input on your CV from two Women Full Professors. This program has been very useful for women and I encourage you to send your CV if appropriate.
Leadership Program for Women Faculty
