Track: Navigating the Business of Science
Theme 1: Navigate or Develop Business Acumen to Advance a Scientific Career
In today’s competitive world, scientists need to gain a better understanding of business to make better decisions and build successful careers. A well-developed technical set of goals coupled with business knowledge prepares scientists to become leaders in tomorrow’s environment. Examples of topics relevant to this theme include: negotiating a contract, understanding stock options, protecting intellectual property, elements of job offers, managing a division or company, securing resources to fund scientific and/or business goals, managing investor relationships in light of company goals, inter-company negotiation during partnerships and collaborations (in-licensing, mergers and acquisitions, co-developed assets), getting started as an entrepreneur, and securing venture capital funds for a start-up.
Theme 2: Achieve Work-Life Harmony and Build a Sense of Unity for a Diverse Group
Globalization has brought professionals from diverse backgrounds together to achieve common objectives. A successful team benefits from differences in education, training, experiences, cultures, and the contribution of ideas by its members. Examples of topics relevant to this theme include: how to foster meaningful diversity to enrich a workforce, understanding unconscious bias and its effect on decision-making, ways to support mental health in a competitive environment, effective listening practices for leaders, how to use inclusive language, building a diverse network and support system in the workplace, strategies for expanding one’s skills, saying no without guilt, and the role of sponsorship in improving organizational diversity.
