Melissa Segal, LCSW, CEO of Interhuman Solutions

Congratulations! You are finishing your PhD or postdoctoral research and hoping to secure a faculty or industry position soon! You feel confident about your research, but you may have questions about building your lab personnel. How do you figure out whom to hire? How do you set up productive, working relationships with your mentees from the beginning? How can you give feedback? In this interactive session, discover how to successfully move from mentee to mentor.

This workshop is highly interactive and attendees should be prepared to actively participate on camera. Workshop size is limited to 25 participants to facilitate small group discussion. Because space is limited, please do not register unless you are sure you can attend. 

Participation in this forum earns 2 RCR credits for graduate students who attend the full session. You will NOT receive credit if you arrive for this event late or leave early. For questions regarding RCR credit, contact
