The following 2020 evening workshops are open to all conference attendees. There is no additional fee to participate.

Career Development Event/Workshop, Sunday 4:30 - 5:45 pm

Organized by Laurie Parker (University of Minnesota)

Have you wondered how your skills, interests and values might fit with those held by leaders in different types of science careers? Join us for an interactive event that will let you explore possible career options by self-assessing what matters most to you in your work now, and learning more about how scientists in leadership positions in industry, academia, policy, and other areas assess themselves on the same aspects of work and life. Student and post doc conference registrants will receive an RSVP link approximately 6-8 weeks prior to the conference so that they can complete their own profile for use during this workshop. Open to all but targeted audience are students and post docs.

This event will start with comparing your own Skills/Interests/Values profile against de-identified Panelist profiles available near the Registration Desk during the US HUPO Annual Meeting. Then join us for the big reveal during the event/workshop, where you will meet the panelists, learn their identities and current positions, and be able to talk to them about their career paths.
