This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Join the Women's Research Engineers Network (WREN) for a free, engaging, and transformative workshop on " Staying Well in Your Research Career." 
Working in research is an exciting and, at the same time, challenging experience. While it involves the thrill of exploring new ideas and contributing to knowledge, it also brings isolation, setbacks, uncertainty, and loss of motivation. This workshop offers evidence-based strategies to maintain well-being amidst the ups and downs of research careers.

In this workshop, we will discuss:

  • Managing the workload
  • Resilience and finding a balance
  • Learning how to switch off
  • Dealing with worries about setbacks and progress
  • Good habits e.g. exercise, sleep, routines
  • Dealing with isolation, lack of structure and loss of motivation
  • Procrastination, perfectionism and over-committing
  • Disagreements with supervisors and other colleagues
  • Support for more serious mental health issues
  • Supporting friends/colleagues who may be struggling.

The workshop will be conducted by Dr Hugh Kearns from iThinkWell. Kearns is recognized internationally as a public speaker, educator, and researcher. He regularly lectures at universities worldwide, including Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Berkeley, Stanford, ETH Zurich, and the Max Planck Group. In addition, he has coached individuals, teams, and executives in a wide range of organizations in the public and private sectors.

Researchers from all genders, levels, and backgrounds are welcome!
The workshop will be held online on May 15, 2024, at 8:00 Am AEST*.
Participants will receive a certificate of participation. 

Don't miss the opportunity to learn how to stay well in a research career!
