Mentoring Event: Although we will be virtual for the 2021 meeting, we are working on a mentoring event to replace our traditional “Let’s Do Lunch”. Our virtual mentoring event promises to be fun for both Mentors and Mentees, and will be a wonderful way to network and meet new members of the organization! The event will incur no additional expense for participation.
Attention Student Members: this year the Student Group is organizing a “Three-Minute Thesis" competition. Each speaker will have three minutes and one static slide to summarize their graduate research for the audience and a panel of judges. Talks will be recorded and posted to the PPASG-run YouTube channel (with speaker permission). Prizes will include categories such as ‘audience favorite’, ‘most tech savvy’, and ‘funniest,’ and speakers will have the option to receive written feedback from the judges. This is a great opportunity for student members to craft a synopsis of their research that is accessible to a general audience and practice presentation skills in a low stress setting.
