The Journeys workshop brings together junior and senior women working in International Relations. The weekend experience is highlighted by research presentations by junior scholars, feedback on research from conference participants, sessions on career and gender topics (e.g., networking, mentoring, balancing family & work, women in the classroom, negotiations), and oral autobiographies by senior scholars.
