Proceeds from this event will benefit the Rivka Carmi Endowment Fund for Women’s Academic Achievement. Your contribution will help:

  • Attract and retain the best and brightest young female faculty members through projects that create a supportive environment for women academics at BGU. This includes mentor training for veteran BGU faculty members and a forum to encourage dialogue on gender equality.
  • Fund programs that motivate and prepare women Ph.D. students to apply for postdoctoral fellowships that are critical for a successful career in academia. This includes workshops in competitive grant writing, leadership development, CV writing, and coping with work/life balance.
  • Subsidize the travel and living expenses of exceptional BGU female graduate students and their families, while participating in prestigious postdoctoral fellowship programs abroad.
  • Support the ongoing work of the Office of Advancement of Women at BGU, which serves as the direct address for gender-related issues and serves all female students and faculty.
