Second Workshop on Survival Skills for Successful Women Physicists

A successful career in physics, as in most other fields, requires more than hard work and good technical skills. The Committee on the Status of Women in Physics (CSWP) hosted a workshop “Survival Skills for Successful Women Physicists” on March 21, prior to the APS Meeting in Montreal. The half-day workshop featured both highly successful women physicists and an experienced training professional. Information on the speakers can be found below. Links to speaker materials are also provided.
