Women in Soil Ecology (WISE)
Are you interested in increasing the success and presence of women in soil ecology? If so, please consider joining the Women in Soil Ecology (WISE) mentorship program as a mentor or a mentee. We are looking for soil ecologists (early or mid-career) to serve as mentors and graduate students interested in being mentored. We aim to build a strong network of women in soil ecology and foster development of successful female scientists. This program will encourage: 

  • Monthly or bi-monthly phone calls/skype between mentees and mentors
  • Navigating applying for post-docs/grants
  • Tips for reporting/dealing with sexual harassment
  • Shadowing or collaborating on a large grant application
  • Discussing current literature (top pubs from that month etc.)
  • Conference meet-ups
