MOMS WHO MEASURE MENTORING SESSION: NAVIGATING ACADEMIC AND INDUSTRY CAREERS

Thursday, March 28th – 2:30-4:00 pm ET

Currently, women CEO’s run just 10.4% of Fortune 500 companies, and only 27% of academic mothers get tenure. It can- and must- get so much better than this. In this mentoring session, a panel of highly successful scholars of education and applied measurement will share their insights on navigating academia and industry as women – and specifically, mothers- who measure. The panel will feature Dr. Fumiko Hoeft, Campus Dean and Chief Administrative Officer, UCONN Waterbury, Dr. Sara Rimm-Kaufman- Commonwealth Professor of Education, UVA, Dr. Bridget Hamre, Founder and CEO of Teachstone, and Dr. Aaliyah Samuel – President and CEO of CASEL. The panel will be moderated by Dr. Christina Cipriano, Associate Professor and Director of the Education Collaboratory at Yale University.
