Research Workforce and Early Career Development Learning Community [HRA Members Meeting, Chicago, Fall 2023]

Monday October 16, 11:00am-12:00pm CT

Session Description

This session showcased resources that support Early Career researchers in areas such as mental health, leadership and management, financial planning, and dependent care. These areas have been highlighted recently as being critical to recruitment, retention and well-being during the early career stage. Funders and universities have a vested interest in supporting their grantees to promote both recruitment and retention through the various stages of the academic pipeline. In this session, attendees were encouraged to share resources they have used within their organizations to support their grantees. Resources were compiled on a Google Doc, available on the Members-Only Documents page.
