Student Sessions

One of the major Student Programs themes this year is Thriving in Academia. As part of this theme, Student Programs will be having two new workshops The first, Making the Most of Your Academic Career, is a group of breakout sessions to discuss tips for making the most of your undergraduate, graduate or postdoctoral careers. The second workshop will have a focus on Mentoring, discussing the mentor-mentee relationships and how to be an effective mentee and an effective mentor. This workshop will also discuss the importance of peer mentorship, with the overall goal of establishing peer accountability/discussion groups to enhance productivity throughout the year.

As with last year, Student Programs will also have workshops dedicated to reviewing resumes and CVs, as well as a Scholarship/Fellowship Panel. The Student Programs day will be capped with the second annual Elevator Sessions, where students will get a chance to pitch their research to their peers and get feedback on communicating to individuals outside of their concentration.
