The Association for Women in Geosciences would like to kick off this semester’s brown bag lunch discussion series next Wednesday (9/11) at 12pm in Deike 541. Ben Barnes will be curating a discussion surrounding issues of mental health, anxiety, and ‘imposter syndrome’ in academia.
These themes can seem daunting, but often commonly impact graduate students and faculty alike. For those of us just starting their degree to fourth- and fifth-year Ph.D. students, we all have thoughts to contribute which can help promote healthy mindsets and remind us that we are not alone.
We invite everyone to join us next week, including faculty, post-docs, and researchers. Attached below are two (short) articles about these topics which will lead into our discussion – I encourage you to read over these in advance.
All are welcome to attend. Please bring your own lunch.
