This workshop aims to familiarize women in the mathematical sciences with professional opportunities in industry and government labs and to help them thrive in these fields. There will also be a special session to discuss principles of negotiation, developing "best alternatives to a negotiated agreement," and understanding your negotiating style. Case practices, particularly job interview scenarios will be used to illustrate the principles presented in the workshop.
The audience is graduate students and Ph.D.s in the early stages of their post-graduate careers. Researchers at any stage of their careers will also find it valuable.
Speakers, panelists, and discussion leaders are women in research and management positions in industry and government labs as well as women in academia who have strong ties with industry.
Participants are encouraged to present a poster on their research. Sponsored by the University of Minnesota and the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM).
