Co-located with the Let-All great mentoring workshop, we are hosting a career panel for Women in Learning Theory on the theme of "Career Path and Decisions in Industry and Academia". The event will be hosted on Zoom on Thursday, August 5th at 2pm ET (20h CEST). Our panelists are

    • Nika Hagtalab (UC Berkeley)

    • Shipra Agrawal (Columbia)

    • Doina Precup (DeepMind and McGill University)

    • Dana Angluin (Yale, Emeritus)

We will have a slido to let you ask your own questions to them, and the panel will be followed by a social game on Gatheround.

Past events

Mentoring Program

We are proposing a mentoring program for women in Learning Theory that aims to connect more junior members with role models.

Mentoring also gives senior researchers the opportunity to meet, help and learn with new students and young researchers everywhere in the world. Note that mentoring can also be done by PhDs or postdocs willing to share their experience with more junior researchers (undergrads or early PhD students), so please feel welcome applying as a mentor even as a junior researcher.

If you would like to be a mentor or a mentee, please fill in either or both of the forms below.

More information on mentoring can be found on this page.

The WiML-T projects are supported by the WiML Association and would not be possible without the great initiatives and creativity of

  • Ruth Urner

  • Kamalika Chaudhuri

  • Michal Moshkovitz

  • Jessica Sorrell

  • Mary Anne Smart

  • Lee Cohen

  • Claire Vernade
