Graduate students play a lot of roles — student, researcher, lab partner, co-author, mentor, advisee, mentee — and in each role you develop different interpersonal skills. In this event, we will break down the interpersonal skillset that graduate students develop: what these skills are, how they show up in the many roles that grad students play, and how they apply to different career paths you may be interested in pursuing. By the end of this session, you will be able to identify the roles you play as a graduate student and articulate the skills these roles enable you to develop in interpersonal communication, multicultural competence, and active listening.

This event is the second in the four-part series, Imagining Post-PhD Career Possibilities: Advocating for your Professional Skills and Value. The events in this series include the following:
