Episode #90 REPLAY: Career Sponsors

A replay from Season 2, Ep. 50 that seems about right for this time of year & the career conversations we've been having on #InVinoFab -- enjoy!

For #InVinoFab episode no. 50, Patrice and Laura discuss a few articles related to sexism in the academy and how we can better support career planning for women. Being strategic about your own career path might help women move forward. We discuss mentoring vs. career sponsor. It will be critical to find a career sponsor to get you towards your tenure goal for academia or to climb your own career ladder at work.
