Professional Development

As part of our mission of providing women with the resources they need to succeed in scientific careers, we organize workshops for the entire CSHL community covering topics including:

  • Speaking to be Heard (led by Judy Mizrachi)

We also organize Practice Talks to provide opportunities for all CSHL scientists to practice giving research talks and receive constructive feedback in a supportive environment. At this moment, we are holding virtual practice talks for post-docs and graduate students. Email Andrea at if you are interested.
