Graduate Student Shruthi Kubatur selected to participate in Computing Research Association Women Graduate Cohort Workshop
Graduate Student Shruthi Kubatur has been selected to participate in the Computing Research Association Women Graduate Cohort Workshop. At the Grad Cohort Workshop, women graduate students in their first year of graduate school are welcomed into the community of computing researchers and professionals with a broad range of strategies and role models. Students will meet for two days with 20 to 25 senior computing researchers and professionals who will share pertinent information on graduate school survival skills, as well as more personal information and insights about their experiences. The rewards of a research career will be emphasized. The workshop will include a mix of formal presentations and informal discussions and social events. Through this workshop, students will be able to build mentoring relationships and develop peer networks that will form the basis for ongoing activities during their graduate careers.
The CRA-W Grad Cohort program, initiated in 2004, is being generously funded by Microsoft this year, along with significant support from Google as well as contributions from Yahoo!, IBM, and other contributors. Grad Cohort aims to increase the ranks of senior women in computing by building and mentoring nationwide communities of women through their graduate studies.
