Recruiting young women into the research and teaching specialty of ethnic geography is essential in an ever-increasing diverse nation. Once young women ethnic geographers enter into tenure-track academic positions, they need role models and mentors who can guide them to successful tenure and promotion and to rewarding professional careers in ethnic geography.
