Women Mentoring in International Development
A new global mentoring initiative for women working in international development
WOMID - Women Mentoring in International Development - links women doing development facing PhDs and post-docs with women working in the development field outside of academia through a global voluntary mentoring scheme.
Women working outside academia mentor PhD and early career women through their studies, ultimately helping them make the step into either professional academia or the outside practitioner world whilst themselves growing their networks, gaining first hand access to new and exciting research, and sharing their experiences.
Together, the mentoring will help to break down the barriers between the research and practical fields in development, as well as provide a much needed support network for women in early career academic positions.
