2. Survival Skills workshop planned for APS
From: Meg Urry meg.urryyale.edu

The Committee on the Status of Women in Physics will offer a
half-day workshop on Survival Skills for Successful Women
Physicists at the American Physical Society's March 2002
Meeting. This informational workshop will be aimed at technically
competent women physicists who seek advice and training to
improve their skills in navigating through the waters of today's
research world to advance to the top. The workshop will feature a
mixture of respected training professionals and highly successful
women physicists and will cover such issues as raising research
funds, balancing career and family, effective communication and
networking, negotiation, leadership, advancement in organizations,
and more. To ensure sufficient interaction, the seats will be
limited. Both men and women are invited to participate. Further
information on times, registration, and costs will be available soon
