Surviving and Thriving in Academia now available
Surviving and Thriving in Academia: A Guide for Women and Ethnic
Minorities is an updated and expanded edition of the "Survival Guide to
Academia for Women and Ethnic Minorities" published in 1992 by the
American Psychological Association (APA) Committee on Women in
Psychology (CWP). CWP and the APA Commission on Ethnic Minority
Recruitment, Retention, and Training in Psychology (CEMRRAT)
collaborated to produce this guide. Surviving and Thriving in Academia
was designed to highlight academic career milestones and offer key
strategies to traverse these milestones so that women and ethnic
minorities can most effectively meet these academic challenges.
Surviving and Thriving in Academia has three major goals: to
assist new PhDs who are women and/or ethnic minorities in finding and
selecting jobs that effectively compliment their personal mix of skills
and career goals, to help women and ethnic minority faculty members
enhance their promotion and tenure portfolios, and to identify
strategies to support members of underrepresented groups with the
emotional and strategic challenges if tenure and/or promotion is denied.
