This webinar, the second in a series, will explore high-level approaches to managing multiple projects, multiple roles, and dynamic biomedical science careers with ASHG member experts and a certified coach/facilitator in the area of professional and career development.
In this webinar, attendees will learn about:
- Challenges associated with managing multiple projects and clarifying which projects to pursue.
- Crafting practical project timelines and working with collaborators to get the projects done.
- Taking the time to incorporate milestones, inflection points, and go/no-go decisions into your research plans
- Communicating regularly with your advisor/thesis committee/team members about your progress, even if they are non-responsive
- Having the confidence to not wait for leadership opening to come your way and how to impact a team or project even when you have no authority or decision-making power.
- Creating opportunity including getting buy-in, multi-institutional support, and funding.
- Avoiding burnout with a focus on prioritizing projects and streamlining your contributions.
Future webinars in the series will take a deep dive into specific work-life balance topics like parenting, networking, career choices, and remote working, based on what attendees’ say they want to hear about the most. Join us as we explore the necessary art of balancing your science with your personal life in this new age of work.
This webinar series is available to current ASHG members only. Please join or renew your membership today to register for the event.
Lisa Hanasono, PhD
Associate Professor in the School of Media and Communication
Bowling Green State University
Dr. Lisa Hanasono is an associate professor in the School of Media and Communication at Bowling Green State University, and she is the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity’s (NCFDD) Academic Director of Training and Content. As a communication scholar, she focuses primarily on how institutions of higher education, academic leaders, and individuals can stop discrimination, reduce inequities, and support the career advancement of minoritized faculty. In addition to publishing her research in peer-reviewed journals and delivering keynote presentations and faculty development workshops across the United States, she is currently a Co-PI of a nearly $1 million NSF ADVANCE Adaptation grant that examines how inclusive leadership, allyship, and institutional transformations can reduce social biases and support the career advancement of minoritized faculty in STEM disciplines.
