This event is recommended for: Postbacs; Graduate Students; Postdocs/Fellows.

Do you have a suggestion for improving efficiency in your lab but lack the confidence to bring it to the attention of your PI? Do you need additional resources for your experiments or time off for an important family activity but don’t know how to ask?  Are you afraid to mention the fact that you are having major difficulty dealing with one of your lab mates? 

This session will help you to explore strategies for communicating your needs in a variety of situations. Learn how to be more assertive, to speak up for yourself, and how to decide when to speak up and when not to.  

A zoom link will be provided to those who register.
