Underrepresented Genders in Philosophy +

This is a group for cis women, trans, and genderqueer students in philosophy. We meet once a month to discuss philosophy, academics and professionalization, and our experiences as women and gender minorities in philosophy. In addition to monthly meetings, we will develop a mentorship program in Winter 2017 between graduate and undergraduate students of underrepresented genders in philosophy. Graduate student mentors will make themselves available to discuss philosophy, academic life in philosophy, applying to graduate school, and will otherwise offer support to undergraduate student mentees. This a community building project for students of underrepresented genders among students of underrepresented genders in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Alberta.
