developing relationships with a wide range of people and organizations
In this highly interactive, two-session workshop, you will apply the innovation principles of design thinking to the "wicked problem" of designing your life and vocation in and beyond Stanford. This workshop offers you the opportunity to approach these lifelong questions with a structured framework and work out your ideas in conversation with your graduate peers. It is especially useful for students who are just beginning their career exploration or would like structured space to reflect on their interests.
Learn from other changemakers in STEM, and build your professional and academic network at WINS. The WISE Inspirations Network at Stanford (WINS) provides you the opportunity to engage with a diverse array of stand-out women in science and engineering, and connect with potential mentors, peers, and other colleagues.
The Fall 2018 WINS will feature Ellen Ochoa, PhD.
Engaging with faculty mentors can be challenging, because you both come with expectations that are often hidden and not explicitly discussed. This can impact critical issues in communication, research directions, authorship, and so on. Through this workshop, you will gain skills and confidence to engage pro-actively with faculty.
Learn how to manage the challenges and joys of life as a doctoral student, focusing on managing your schedule, your relationship with your advisor, and making the most of what should be a truly special time.
