Participants and mentors at the 2019 Academic Careers Workshop

After a one year hiatus, the Academic Careers Workshop (ACW), sponsored by the Center for Minorities and People with Disabilities (CMD-IT), was held on May 16-19, 2019 in Houston, TX. There were 18 participants who attended, including four people with disabilities. The workshop is for senior graduate students and postdocs soon to be on the academic job market, as well as junior faculty members who are just beginning their academic careers. Experienced mentors led talks, panels, and working groups on grant writing, effective teaching, leadership, and other topics leading toward advancement in academia. AccessComputing has been part of the organizing team for the workshop since 2010.
