Dear WGSS Students,

My name is Anna Layman, and I work for Bonds of Union (www.bondsofunion.org), a startup nonprofit organization in Cincinnati, Ohio, that develops innovative initiatives to address important challenges facing low-income communities in our region.

We are so appreciative of your support during our 2020 recruitment cycle! I am reaching out to you again this year to ask for your help to recruit motivated and thoughtful students and recent graduates in our 2021 Ascend Teaching and Innovation (ATI) Fellowship. This is a two-year fellowship based in Cincinnati that begins in August 2021. Selected fellows serve as Learning Coaches, working together one-on-one with students in grades 3-5 at a low-performing public school on individualized, “low-floor, high-ceiling” math tasks that foster a growth mindset and support social-emotional development. Here is a brief video that explains what we do and what makes Ascend so special.

Due to COVID-19, we were not able to visit the Williams College campus this cycle in person as we had hoped to meet with students. Our team would greatly appreciate you taking the time to forward this flyer to any student groups, classes, and/or ListServs that could reach interested candidates. The next deadline for the ATI Fellowship application is March 31st. We will be processing applications and conducting interviews on a rolling basis until we have filled our available positions.

Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions. Additionally, if you happen to think of any specific students who you think may be a great candidate for our fellowship, please encourage them to reach out to us directly.

Thank you for your help!


Anna Layman

Founded by Gerda Lerner as the first Women’s History M.A. program in the United States in 1972, our scholars continuously work to build a more intersectional and interdisciplinary understanding of women’s history. The ReVisionist aims to provide young scholars, activists, creatives, and visionaries with a platform on which to share their knowledge and voices, as well as engage in professional development.Our theme for November is “Whose land are you voting on?,” aimed at acknowledging Indigenous Heritage Month and opening a space for engaging with the 2020 Presidential Election.
