learning about career paths from others
Learn from other changemakers in STEM, and build your professional and academic network at WINS. The WISE Inspirations Network at Stanford (WINS) provides you the opportunity to engage with a diverse array of stand-out women in science and engineering, and connect with potential mentors, peers, and other colleagues.
The Fall 2018 WINS will feature Ellen Ochoa, PhD.
Discuss the purpose of building networks in advance of the job search and strategies for creating effective job application materials. You will learn how to 1) make inroads into organizations before jobs open up, and 2) articulate your most relevant accomplishments to demonstrate fit with a posted job opportunity.

The Women in Data Science (WiDS) initiative aims to inspire and educate data scientists worldwide, regardless of gender, and support women in the field. WiDS started as a conference at Stanford in November 2015. Now, WiDS includes a global conference, with 150+ regional events worldwide; a datathon, encouraging participants to hone their skills; and a podcast, featuring leaders in the field talking about their work, and their journeys. WiDS will be held at Stanford University, at 150+ regional events hosted by WiDS Ambassadors, and available via livestream.
Join us for a fireside chat with Pat Gelsinger, CEO of VMware and Stanford University alumnus.
Want to learn how to network with people in person? Whether you've just met someone new at Coupa, a job expo, or a conference, this fun, interactive workshop will give you the skills you need to feel confident about developing professional relationships.

While public regional institutions tend to have less focus on graduate students and research, there are still some great benefits to being a part of such universities. Discuss the differences and opportunities found in the CSU or similar system.
Not surprisingly, research expectations and support at a liberal arts college are significantly different from a research institution. Discuss strategies for juggling research and teaching at these unique institutions.
Teaching at a community college might be just the right ticket to a satisfying and rewarding faculty career. We will discuss why this might be and what opportunities are out there for those that choose this route.
