SIGNAL Graduate Student Workshop: Professional Development & Peer Networking in Animal Behavior (May 16-17)

Recommended Posts

Are you a graduate student working in any area of animal behavior, broadly defined? Do you need more support or feel marginalized in your field/program? Join us a fun and inspiring two-day virtual workshop!!

Since 2021, SIGNAL has been holding a virtual, two-day interactive annual workshop specifically designed for animal behavior graduate students that identify as minoritized in STEM. This workshop starts with scientists and diversity specialists as plenary speakers who lead a series of interactive discussions on strategies for responsive mentoring, networking, as well as navigating dysfunctional environments. The workshop continues with a panel of animal behavior leaders in industry, academic, NGO and government careers who share perspectives and strategies for success in diverse career paths related to animal behavior. Finally, the workshop culminates with the establishment of long-term peer mentoring circles, specifically built to empower and support minoritized graduate students in the field of animal behavior.

The workshop is funded by the Animal Behavior Society and NSF CAREER grant #2239099

Applications are due May 3rd.
