The highlight of the SRK is a 30-week course entitled “Career Building for Women in Science,” which includes two day-long workshops. Following each day-long session, you will have an opportunity to network with the facilitator in a 2-hour, bi-weekly meeting (for 14 weeks). The SRK Fellowship also includes mentoring opportunities with successful women scientists from government, industry, and academia as well as seminars on relevant topics such as networking, managing people, time management, and how to promote yourself. This rewarding program involves an extensive time commitment not only during the course/activity time but also throughout the year-long fellowship.
