PWIGS Event - 05/17/2019 - Growing Healthy Labs - Workhops

 (More about event)

A healthy work environment is fundamental to good science, but we rarely discuss strategies for how to create and maintain one.  Despite measurable and empirically-supported benefits associated with effective leadership, management, and mentorship for both advisors and trainees, most faculty are rarely trained in these skills.  As a result, academic teams can lose time to unproductive interpersonal issues, lack of motivation, and unnecessary conflict.  These problems can lead to high costs in terms of money, productivity, mental health, and retention of talent, and often disproportionally impact students from groups underrepresented in STEM fields.
