The primary focus of the Connectors Program is to cultivate relationships between current BWH postdocs and previous BWH postdocs that have transitioned to new careers.
For access to the Connectors Program or for additional information please contact the Program Co-Chairs: Yashini Govender (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Brian Sansbury (BSansbury@bwh.harvard.edu)
The goals of the Program are to:
- Curate a list of former BWH postdocs who have transitioned into careers within or outside of academia who are willing to provide advice and informational interviews to current BWH postdocs
- Facilitate networking among current and former BWH postdocs who are interested in receiving career advice from those who have already made the transition
In order to join the Connectors Program current BWH postdocs must do one of the following:
- Attend one session of the Career Development & Transitions Workshop series offered by the BWH Postdoc Leadership Council (PLC) in collaboration with the Center for Faculty Development & Diversity (CFDD). More information about these workshops can be found below.
- In-person meeting with the Co-Chairs, and attendance at least one Biotech Tuesday Networking Event (https://biotechtuesday.com). Note: events occur monthly and are free. Once you register, you can receive e-mail updates about upcoming events.
