About the event
Tired of feeling like you have too many meetings?
Whether you are a seasoned academic or an early career researcher, you may have experienced the frustration of attending inefficient and unproductive meetings, or find yourself overloaded with back-to-back meetings and not enough time to get your work done.
As time consuming as meetings are, collaboration, creativity and innovation are best developed when there is a diversity of perspectives. When done right, meetings are crucial in the development of new research ideas.
So, what are the best practices for effective meetings? What steps can be taken to handle conflicts and disagreements, while allowing for healthy debate and new perspectives? How can their value be optimised?
In the first webinar of the Women in Research 'Small Wins' series for 2023, our host ARC Laureate Fellow and John Curtin Distinguished Professor Sharon Parker from Curtin University will share research findings and advice around planning for and running effective and productive meetings.
She will be joined by former Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research and Innovation) at University of Wollongong and former Director of the Griffith Institute for Drug Discovery, ARC Laureate Fellow Professor Jennifer Martin who will share her experience and provide proven tips on improving the quality of meeting participation and outcomes.
You can submit your questions to the guests upon registrations. We hope to see you online!
All women-identifying academics who engage in research as part of their role, Level A to Level E, across all disciplines and universities/research institutions
