eAlliances: Mentoring for women (#AAPTsm16)

by Stephanie Chasteen on July 19, 2016

Another interesting resource from the AAPT conference:  An online mentoring community for female physicists.  The eAlliances project (eAlliances.aapt.org) provides peer mentoring networks so women can get advice, support, and connections to other women physics (and astronomy) faculty.  This sounds awesome, and a real opportunity for providing the kinds of mentoring that women need.  There is a growing use of online networks for professional development, such as the Faculty Online Learning Communities (FOLCs), also sponsored by AAPT, providing communities around the use of interactive engagement techniques for those who have attended the AAPT New Faculty Workshop.  (More information about the FOLCs).
