Episode 132: Why Investing In Yourself Is A Radical Act of Self-Care
Why is investing in ourselves as academic womxn a radical act? And what should you do if your institution doesn’t want to invest in you? Making your career what you want it to be is up to you.
There’s a lot of talk these days about self-care, but what does this mean for us as academics? How do we make sure we are getting where we want to go in our careers, and valuing our own contributions to the world? In order to grow and develop as scholars, we must invest in ourselves. As womxn, this is a radical act, and one I hope you’ll make for yourself.
In this summer season, we will be re-releasing a few older podcasts to start us off. With that said, this episode is a re-release of episode 89 of the podcast. You can find episode 89 full show notes here.
But, we do want to make you aware of some fun things happening currently in the summer of 2022! We created both a live and a recorded info session for the latest, revised version of our Amplify Faculty Writing Accelerator Program for pre-tenure faculty.
If you are in an early faculty career position in the US or Canada and are interested in a program for creating an early career experience to get tenure on your terms, this is absolutely for you. It was held live on June 16, 2022. But if you’re hearing this after June 16, don’t worry, because you can still sign up to receive the recorded version of the program!
