Seed Grant: Stammtisch

Stammtisch is a German word that refers to the “regulars’ table,” or a recurring informal gathering. This project will create a community of 20 female-identified scholars across Duke who support one another to achieve excellence. To build community rooted in safety and belonging, the Stammtisch will take place once per week over three semesters. Lunchtime discussions will explore best practices for scholarship, teaching, and professional life. The core aim is to support the diversity of Duke faculty by empowering female-identified faculty to reach their fullest potential. After each meeting, project leaders will document key points from the discussion, and a running survey will be available to all members.
