Join the following AWIS members who will be speaking at this event:

Equitable Solutions for Retaining a Robust STEM Workforce: Beyond Best Practices - Donna J. Dean, PhD

Best practices have been developed that can make the recruitment, retention and promotion of women in science and engineering more gender equitable. This session will focus on how individuals can leverage those strategies into effective techniques for their own mentorship and sponsorship, networking, and professional interactions for career advancement. 

The Benefits of Climate Change in Academia - Sandra K. Masur, PhD
You can look at the pipeline in a negative light (and that is appropriate), but Dr. Masur suggests that you should not stop there because, in addition, you can look at it another way. She argues that we are at a tipping point. In this presentation, Dr. Masur will examine a) case studies that illustrate how progress has been made, b) the role of diverse teams in improving scientific progress and impact, c) institutional and national programs that make a difference in gender equity, and d) how to celebrate success to create positive feedback loops.

Making Connections at Professional Meetings through Strategic Networking - Donna J. Dean, PhD
Networking is an important component for career success and, when strategically implemented, can be utilized to advance one’s career. This interactive workshop will cover the various forms of networking, incorporate small group discussions on the benefits and challenges related to networking, and provide tips and techniques that can immediately be put into action to improve one’s networking skills.
