Contemporary psychology has increasingly become team science, with a distribution of expertise across team members and with collaborations both domestically and internationally. Developing international collaborations early in a scientist’s career, in coordination with graduate or postdoctoral training, and extending beyond it, requires networking that can present challenges to junior scientists and particularly to junior female scientists. In this meeting organized by Women in Cognitive Science ( we focus on strategies for building international networks and for seeking global training across early career stages. Participants will include senior scientists who have successfully developed international collaborations and research networks and junior scientists whose training has included international research and collaboration. We focus on the particular challenges that arise in negotiating different cultures within and outside the laboratory.
