Holding productive conversations with  PIs (and other important mentors) about careers, projects, papers, and personal needs can be challenging.  Do you need to open a difficult dialog with your PI or other mentor, but not sure where to start?  It could be that you’ve decided to change your career path and don’t know how to tell your research mentors,  or that you want to negotiate about leave time, the order of authors on a paper, or setting a defense date.  Whatever the situation, we want to help you turn a potentially stressful conversation into a positive interaction. 

The discussion group provides a confidential and welcoming envirornment to explore positive and proactive ways to build resilience and self-care skills. Please join us on Monday, October 28th at 1:15pm for a discussion with OITE Wellness Advisor, Laurie Chaikind McNulty.  Even if you can't join us for the entire hour, we encourage you to still attend.  We would rather you come late or leave early, than not come at all.
