The WiCS workshop at Psychonomics will be held on Thursday, November 14, 2019, from 4-6 p.m. The theme of this year's panel is Creating a Healthy Work Environment. The panel discussion is scheduled from 4-6 pm, followed by a speed mentoring session (6-7 pm). Details about the workshop are attached below
For this year's WiCS workshop, this article by Dr. Fernando Maestre serves as a springboard for the theme: https://journals.plos.org/ploscompbiol/article?id=10.1371/journal.pcbi.1....
In 2018, the WiCS meeting at Psychonomics focused on sexual harassment. Our speaker in 2018, Dr. Vicki Magley, suggested that ultimately issues of civility in the workplace must be confronted to address harassment. We believe you will agree that highlighting the need for creating healthier work environments and offering solutions to do so are not only important goals, they are also timely right now. Dr. Maestre has agreed to give the lead presentation on this panel via a video presentation. His presentation will be followed by a panel discussion, speed mentoring, and a reception. An invitation to participate in speed mentoring will be available in the early fall.
Please join us on November 14!
