Graduate Student Programs

This page serves as a resource for programs designed with graduate students in mind; however, all of our programs are open for you to attend. We'd specifically recommend looking at our leadership trainings and to consider completing She Leads OHIO, or applying to serve as a mentor in our women's mentoring program.

Social Support: EmpowHER: Graduate Program Experiences

Social Support: EmpowHER: Graduate Program Experiences

Wednesdays, 4-5PM; August 26 – December 2 via Teams (no meetings on November 11 and November 25th due to university holiday closure on those days). Register online to gain access by filling out this form.

This is a space where members can meet and gain support from one another. This support group will run throughout the summer on Wednesdays, 4PM-5PM, to assist those who want to discuss motivation for graduate work, dealing with isolation, and how to care for self while caring for others (children, elders, neighbors, and friends) during COVID-19. While we expect that this support group will address gendered issues that women face, everyone is welcome to participate. This support group is facilitated by Dr. Kristyn Neckles, embedded psychologist for the Division of Diversity of Inclusion. Please note that this group is not a therapy group. Feel free to utilize the variety of other resources, including telehealth services, at the Counseling and Psychological Services website: https://www.ohio.edu/student-affairs/counseling

Women in Graduate School Day Conference

Join us for a series of workshops and discussions, including personal branding and networking, facing "'isms" in the workplace, budgeting in graduate school, careers after graduate school in academia and outside of academia. While the conference is open to everyone, it is most particularly suited for those currently in graduate school or those who are about to apply for graduate school. Registration is required.

Co-Curricular Guide to Women's Center Programs

If you're new at teaching, you may be looking for additional programming to assist in outside classroom learning opportunities for your students. In order to help faculty seamlessly incorporate our programs into their syllabus, we have prepared a co-curricular guide to bridge the gap between academic units and the Women's Center. This guide has detailed information about our events, areas of study each program would complement, projected learning outcomes, potential discussion questions, as well as recommended readings and in-class activities.
