Demystifying Project Management: a Useful Tool to Run your Research

This is an immersive workshop that will teach you fundamental project management (PM) principles for laboratory research in a fun and engaging way. We will go through the project management cycle and you will be able to learn and apply PM frameworks and tools in a set of team-based activities. The session will culminate in interactive discussions around how to apply PM frameworks in running research projects and managing a lab.

Writing at the Intersections: Crafting a Diversity Statement

In their efforts to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion, universities and employers are increasingly requiring prospective postdocs, fellows and employees to include a diversity statement in their application materials. This workshop will show you how to approach the diversity statement as a story about the intersections at which you stand and how those intersections inform your scholarship and teaching.

University Non-Faculty Leadership Roles

This panel will highlight PhD-holders who are leaders at Stanford but are not faculty members. These panelists will discuss their career paths and their roles, as well as offering advice for those who are interested in "alt-ac" or non-faculty academic careers.

Panelist: Dr. Elizabeth Ponder, Executive Director Stanford Chem-H
Panelist: Dr. Ayodele Thomas, Vice President for DEIB, Stanford
Panelist: Dr. Jeffrey Schwegman, Assistant Dean of Humanities & Sciences, Stanford
