Building professional relationships

April 20, 2021 | 1–2:30 p.m. EDT | Free registration required

Building and maintaining professional relationships are critical to success as a scientist — from landing a job to establishing collaborations. This workshop will focus on effective strategies for developing professional relationships in person or virtually. Participants will identify their goals for networking and ways in which they can meet new contacts over the next year, learn how to initiate and maintain professional relationships, and create a networking action plan. Participants will leave the workshop with increased confidence in their networking and relationship-building abilities.
