About the Careers by Design workshop series
This six-part workshop series aims to foster healthy lab environments that support the inclusion and well-being of all members, while empowering graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and research/scientific associates to realize their academic and professional goals. All workshops will be led by Nana Lee, PhD, Director, Graduate Professional Development & Mentorship, and Assistant Professor in the departments of Biochemistry & Immunology at the University of Toronto.

The Careers by Design: Building a Professional Development Blueprint workshop series, and the Individual Development Plan, are resources developed by the Healthy and Inclusive Labs Committee to support trainee well-being, success and foster an inclusive environment in labs. If you missed any of the sessions, you can still participate in the workshop series. Throughout the sessions, participants will use the Individual Development Plan as a guiding document. Learn more about the workshop series and register for upcoming Workshops.
