Special Workshop Announcement for Women Ph.D., Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Fellows
Dear Women Ph.D, Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Fellows,
We would like to invite you to attend an upcoming NSF ADVANCE sponsored seminar for women Ph.D. and graduate students and post-doctoral fellows at RIT on Negotiation Skills and Conflict Resolution. The seminar is offered through the COACh program from the University of Oregon and our facilitator is Dr. Jane Tucker. Dr. Tucker has facilitated this session to over 6000 women faculty and graduate students in the past and she comes to us with rave reviews. The attached pdf describes the seminar and speaker in more detail. The seminar is 3-hours long which I know is difficult to fit into our schedules but from what I have heard from many different people over the years it’s worth the time.
We are hosting seminars for women faculty and one seminar for women PhD and graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. The graduate student seminar is highly interactive and therefore rather small with an ideal participant count of 35/seminar. All seminars will be held in Skalny Room, Interfaith Center- Building 16. Details follow:
