The MPOWIR webinar series provides a mechanism for continuing discussion and advice aimed at scientists who have moved from postdoctoral positions into the early stages of a longer-term position. While topics chosen are particularly relevant to early career participants, participation is open to anyone at any career stage, regardless of gender.
Webinars help to fill gaps in the resources and support available to independent researchers at different institutions. Two webinars per year focus on pressing early- to mid-career topics. The webinars begin with a brief presentation by panelists on the selected topic, followed by an open discussion with all participants.
Goal: Provide continued support to “graduated” MPOWIR participants and expand our gender inclusive offerings by providing a venue for idea sharing and open discussion on pressing early career topics.
Format: Webinars will open with a 20 minute presentation, followed by questions and discussion.
Who: All career stages and genders.
Join MPOWIR for our next webinar on ‘Articulating Your DEI Values’ with Dr. Mary Glackin Monday, September 26th at 12:00pm EDT/9:00am PDT.
Increasingly, individuals have opportunities to articulate their DEI values, and integrate those values into their work through diversity statements, cover letters, communication, and projects. Making the most of these opportunities builds a more inclusive community for everyone. Learning to craft and articulate your own values is a critical step in shifting cultures to be more equitable and inclusive. Former president of the American Meteorological Society (AMS), Mary Glackin will share her expertise in integrating DEI into her own leadership, and into programs and policies that she led during her career. Her remarks will be followed by a facilitated discussion.
