Professional Skills Development for Women Physicists

Do you want to improve your negotiation skills? Do you have great ideas that you want to communicate to your colleagues?

If so, the Committee on the Status of Women in Physics invites you to attend one of the workshops entitled "Professional Skills Development for Women in Physics." These workshops will:

  • Coach women in key skills that are needed to enhance their careers.
  • Provide training in persuasive communication, negotiation, and leadership presented by experienced professionals.
  • Provide a special opportunity for networking among participants.

Workshops at the 2007 March and April APS Meetings will be aimed at women in industry and government labs, and will take place on Sunday, March 4, 2007 (Denver) and Friday, April 13, 2007 (Jacksonville). Application deadlines are Dec. 4 for the March workshop and Jan. 12 for the April workshop.

Each workshop will be limited in size for optimal benefits. Workshop participants are eligible to receive a stipend to help cover the cost of travel and up to two nights lodging.

These workshops are funded by the National Science Foundation.

Details will be available in September at http://www.aps.org/programs/women/workshops/skills/index.cfm.
