Becoming a Resilient Scientist Discussion Group for Unit 3
About this event
This facilitated small group discussion will allow you to reflect on the material from “Becoming a Resilient Scientist Series Unit 3: Self-Advocacy and Assertiveness” in a safe and confidential space. We will discuss how the materials relate to your own life, learn from each other, and support one another.
We all need to develop the skills needed to be assertive and to advocate for ourselves, especially in hierarchical environments where we sometimes feel we do not have a voice. In this webinar, we will discuss how to set boundaries, communicate expectations, ask for feedback, and discuss difficult issues with friends, mentors, colleagues, and supervisors.
**Attendees must attend or watch the lecture portion of the series prior to attending this discussion group.

How to attend
This is a hybrid event, held in person on the NIH Bethesda campus. We strongly encourage local participants to join us in person as there are substantial benefits to networking with colleagues, taking a walk across campus, and getting out of the research space. We also encourage trainees and fellows on other campuses to gather for “watch parties” for the same reasons.
