Adapting to Change
The world changes. Our research changes. We change.

Self-Reflection in Grad School
How can we look at ourselves with empathy and compassion while still finding areas for improvement? Does this help us to succeed?

How can we talk about the taboo topics in Academia?
From mental health to relationships to trauma, what can grad students do to both express and protect themselves?

From advisors to peers to society at large, we are often confronted with difficult situations and toxic environments.
How can we stand up for ourselves through all of this, especially as trainees in a system like Academia?
