- We are also hosting a networking event following the Distinguished Lecture on Friday night. Meet PhDs who have developed successful careers in a variety of fields, including business, museum work, consulting, and publishing. This event will allow attendees to ask questions and exchange ideas in an informal setting, and the evening will be punctuated by short comments from experts on various aspects of non-academic job searches. The event will be held in the Great Lakes Ballroom Foyer (Level 2) and refreshments will be provided.
- The Graduate and Early Career Caucus hosts a Women’s Tea at the annual meeting for young scholars interested in a more personal discussion with more experienced scholars about the unique challenges facing woman-identified historians of science. Space is limited, so if you are interested RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org and plan to attend the tea on Saturday, November 8, at 4:00 pm in the Parks Boardroom.
- Join us on Saturday at noon for our combined GECC Business Meeting and Negotiation Workshop. Attending the business meeting gives you a chance to grow GECC and participate in the coming year’s events. Following brief business, participants will enjoy the workshop, “Everything You Wanted to Know About Negotiating a Job Offer, But Were Afraid to Ask.” This workshop will be led by a representative of the Higher Education Recruitment Consortium who is also an expert on self-promotion and negotiation, specifically as they relate to race and gender in STEM and higher education fields.
