AEJMC Women Junior Faculty Workshop 2014
AEJMC Pre-Conference Workshop for Women Faculty
2014 Kopenhaver Fellows
“Finding Your Leadership Voice in the Academy”
Looking for some advice and mentorship on being a leader in academia? Join us for the second annual pre-conference workshop sponsored by the AEJMC Commission on the Status of Women, the Lillian Lodge Kopenhaver Center for the Advancement of Women in Communication at Florida International University and the AEJMC Council of Affiliates.
This program is designed to help junior faculty members move forward in their careers through mentoring, networking and preparing for tenure and/or administration or other leadership positions. It is designed for tenure-track women, but some exceptions may be made. We are seeking a cohort of women for our workshop from 1-5 p.m. on Aug. 6, 2014, at the AEJMC conference in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Applicants must be AEJMC members.
Speakers will include senior scholars, administrators and women colleagues who have achieved significant leadership positions in their careers. Keynote speaker is Diane McFarlin, former publisher of the Sarasota Herald-Tribune newspaper and current dean of the University of Florida College of Journalism and Communications. The workshop also will include round table discussions and panels on leadership featuring women managers and administrators.
In addition to the training and networking at this workshop, participants who are selected will be invited to take part in activities of both the CSW and the Kopenhaver Center during the year and receive publications of both groups. An opportunity will be provided for the cohort to reunite at subsequent conventions. Last year’s cohort will attend a meeting and reception along with the new fellows.
Please return this form by June 1, 2014 to Lillian Lodge Kopenhaver, FIU School of Journalism and Mass Communication, firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions? Contact Dr. Kopenhaver or Dr. Tracy Everbach, Everbach@unt.edu.
