After braving through the storm a pandemic has imposed on us, AWIS is excited to host our first virtual discussion webinar “From challenges to achievements during COVID-19”.


Our AWIS board consists of postdocs, industry professionals and professors, and we are hosting a discussion on how to deal with new challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic.


We would like to hear from you as well as offer tips on how to deal with shifting career progression, how to deal with multitasking one’s personal and professional life under a single roof and how to juggle many zoom meetings.
