AGL Professional Skills Development Workshops

Professional Skills Development Workshops

The AGL Professional Skills Development Workshops are a series of eight virtual workshops that kicked off in December 2021 and will be open to women and gender minority graduate students and postdocs from across the world. Workshops will be hosted by facilitators from academia, industry, national labs, and non-profit organizations.

Example workshop topics include communication, negotiation, resume/CV building, and interviewing skills. All workshops will be highly interactive where participants will be able to converse with the facilitators and interact with other participants to help build a community of women and to give them opportunities to network with each other.

Please note that these workshops are open to women and gender minority graduate students and postdocs.
