COAChing Strong Women in the Power of Strategic Persuasion

COAChing Sr. and Jr. Faculty women in the Art of Strategic Persuasion
Sunday July 8, 2012
Hyatt Regency Hotel, Minneapolis, MN
9:00 AM – 12:30 PM

Open to Sr. and Jr. Faculty women, associate and full professors, or equivalent rank in government labs/industry

Presented by: Dr. Barbara Butterfield & Dr. Jane Tucker [PDF, 82KB]

This workshop will help professional women be more effective when leading or participating in discussions, meetings, or group negotiations. Learn about strategic rather than reactive behaviors.  This workshop, which combines self-presentation, leadership training, and faculty development in an interactive format that encourages highly personal learning, is designed to enhance women's abilities and confidence in such situations. This session will also be centered on professional negotiation skills and its multi-faceted approach includes some pragmatic learning content, case studies, and incorporates the real issues facing those attending the sessions.

Cases will be taken directly from the group and will have the opportunity to role play a case to a successful outcome.

There is no fee to attend either workshop but pre-registration is required and limited to 25 participants.  Please register with COACh at: http://coach.uoregon.edu/coach/index.php?page=Register.  When registering, make sure to indicate your attendee type so you will be placed in the correct workshop.

 

COAChing Postdoctoral Fellows and Senior Graduate Student Women in the Art of Strategic Persuasion
Sunday July 8, 2012
Hyatt Regency Hotel, Minneapolis, MN
1:00 PM – 4:30 PM

Open to postdoctoral fellows and senior graduate students, or equivalent level in government labs/industry

Presented by: Dr. Barbara Butterfield & Dr. Jane Tucker [PDF, 82KB]

In this workshop participants assimilate fundamentals of responsible negotiations and conflict resolution; they learn to be curious about points of view, data, and aspirations of all parties involved. Attendees examine the importance of developing alternatives to agreement that build self-confidence and enhance preparation. They use self-examination to discover personal negotiating styles and in prepared case studies covering current challenges, practice skills to reach highly successful outcomes.

Cases will be taken directly from the group and will have the opportunity to role play a case to a successful outcome.

There is no fee to attend either workshop but pre-registration is required and limited to 25 participants.  Please register with COACh at: http://coach.uoregon.edu/coach/index.php?page=Register.  When registering, make sure to indicate your attendee type so you will be placed in the correct workshop.

Registration closes June 30, 2011. Priority registration is given to women.  Male participants can be waitlisted.  There is no registration fee charged to any participant.

Workshop Celebrating Diversity

Organizers:
Tanya Moore, Building Diversity in Science
Cristina Villalobos, University of Texas-Pan American, USA
Stephen Wirkus, Arizona State University

This annual event provides a chance for students to listen to technical talks presented by minority graduate students.  The workshop is intended to accomplish several goals:

To send a clear, explicit message of enthusiastic welcome and support from SIAM to members of under-represented groups.  The workshop is deliberately held as part of a regular SIAM meeting so that the participants can combine the experiences of attending a regular scientific meeting and a special occasion dedicated to them.

To bring together a mixture of people from different levels of age and professional experience, ranging from undergraduate students to senior scientists.

To provide an opportunity for minority graduate students to present their research.

To provide an informal, comfortable setting (a lunch) where all the students can meet applied and computational mathematicians with a wide variety of jobs in academia, national laboratories, industry, and government.

Additional details will be posted here when available.

SIAM has available limited travel support for students, post-docs and early career participants.  Visit SIAM Student Travel Awards and NSF-funded Post-doc/Early Career Attendees support to apply. 

Please note:  You may apply to only one of the co-located meetings and workshop, SIAM Annual Meeting (AN12), Workshop Celebrating Diversity (WD12) or SIAM Conference on Financial Mathematics and Engineering (FM12).

 

Student Days

Organized by the SIAM Education Committee.

Student Days provides student members of SIAM the opportunity to attend presentations given by their peers.  Presentations for Student Days will include lectures given by the SIAM Student Paper Prize winners, presentations from the SIAM winning teams for the Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM), presentations of the research projects of student representatives from SIAM Student Chapters, and undergraduate students presenting papers in computational science and engineering.

Additional information will be posted here as it becomes available.
