Research Workforce & Early Career Development Working Group Open Mic

11/19/2020 1:00-2:00pm ET - Webinars

In this session, we will hold an open mic to discuss ways that funders have been supporting early-career grantees during the pandemic. As we heard during the fall HRA meeting, early-career researchers are particularly vulnerable to challenges during COVID and there are both fiscal and non-fiscal ways we can help. Please see here, for a great summary of the session with recommendations! In this open mic, we will focus on non-grant, no- or low-cost mechanisms of support. We look forward to hearing from our peers on what they have tried- what’s worked and what hasn’t. We will start the session hearing from individuals listed below, and will then open it up for others to share. Please come ready to discuss and share what you have done with the group!
