DescriptionWhether a tenured, tenure-track, professor of practice, or academic professional track faculty, traversing from Assistant to Associate and Associate to Full can be fraught with difficult challenges, decisions, political traps, and teaching surprises. This mentoring circle will be an opportunity to discuss those challenges in a private space. We will also include some general guidelines and examples of 1) how to understand and interpret your own strengths 2) how to strategically choose service activities that align with your interests and strengths 3) how to create a more inclusive lab and classroom in a way that works with your style and personal strengths, 4) how to navigate the political climate, and 5) how to build your own support network within your own university. We will also create a community of practice that will extend beyond the conference consisting of those who participated in the workshop for those who are interested.
