As a part of the WiML Un-Workshop at ICML 2021, on July 21, 2:30 - 3:30 pm EDT, we will host a Mentoring Social, virtually on GatherTown.
The social includes six mentoring roundtables hosted in parallel, where the mentors will target a diverse set of non-technical topics, such as advice on conducting research in both academia and industry, addressing the two-body problem, grant writing strategies, and career paths including non-linear trajectory to Machine Learning. We are excited to have mentors from industry and academia, including Been Kim, Shakir Mohamed, Lalana Kagal, Dina Obeid, Angelique Taylor, and Anna Goldenberg.
In addition, we created a general space/hall in GatherTown, where attendees can socialize with each other. Feel free to reach out to our volunteers in GatherTown for any questions or comments. We look forward to seeing you there!
