    Career mapping is a structured process that helps professionals identify their career goals and develop a plan for getting the mentorship and professional development they need to achieve those goals. Dr. Katharine Stewart, Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs, has refined a career mapping process specifically for faculty, and has used this process with hundreds of graduate students, postdoctoral trainees, and faculty at all stages of their careers (from first year through planning for senior administrative roles or research leadership). In this workshop, Dr. Stewart will help you get started in building your own career map and identifying the components of a professional development and mentorship network that will be most helpful to you in the next few years.
