We are writing to tell you about LATTICE: Launching Academics on the
Tenure Track: an Intentional Community in Engineering. LATTICE is a
national program, funded by the National Science Foundation
(HRD-1500310), to advance faculty diversity in engineering. It
includes a professional development intervention and a research study
to understand why the intervention works. LATTICE seeks to positively
impact early-career women in Electrical Engineering and Computer
Science (EECS) and early-career underrepresented minority women across
all fields of Engineering who are interested in faculty careers.
LATTICE participants will gain a stronger sense of career
self-efficacy and a stronger sense of belonging through a combination
of symposia, peer mentoring networks, and other support structures
over a two-year period. The long-term goal of LATTICE is to diversify
the national engineering faculty population.
We are writing to ask for your help announcing this program to your
colleagues as we are now actively recruiting applicants for our 2017
national LATTICE symposium, to be held May 18-21, 2017 outside of
Seattle, WA. 2017 LATTICE participants will be early career women
Ph.D. engineers from electrical engineering and computer science who
are interested in or are pursuing faculty careers. Early career
includes postdoctoral researchers, assistant professors, assistant
research professors, and other pre-tenure level engineering
positions. Applications will be accepted through 11:59 pm Pacific
Time, January 13, 2017. We would appreciate your assistance in
passing along this e-mail to any of your colleagues who might be
interested in our program.
Please visit our website (www.advance.washington.edu/lattice) for
program details and application materials. Applications are due
January 13, 2017. Feel free to contact us with any questions you might
have at firstname.lastname@example.org.
