NE GWiSE Summer Retreat 2018 || "Navigating Power Dynamics & Building Confident Mentalities" || All students, staff, and faculty from our partner schools, including BU, Brandeis, Brown, Dartmouth, Harvard, MIT, Northeastern, and Tufts, are invited. This will be a day long event featuring Keynote Speaker Professor Sara Seager of MIT, and workshops exploring ways of navigating the power dynamics involved with being a graduate student in academia. Light breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be provided throughout the day. The retreat will include Trivia at the end of the day! || Graduate students often find themselves in unique situations within the academic power hierarchy, trading roles as both mentees and mentors. These structures and power dynamics can have a profound impact on graduate students’ mental health and ultimately their career trajectories. At the 2018 NE GWiSE Retreat, we will explore ways for graduate students to navigate power dynamics and build confident mentalities.
