 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 lattice@uw.edu.
