TRELIS 2020, different and still great

The TRELIS workshops consist of a series of hands-on, participatory and experiential activities, combined with panel presentations to address topics under the following themes – communication and language, mentoring and coaching, addressing obstacles and conflicts, finding work-life balance, and developing individualized career trajectories. The workshop is designed for participants to develop confidence around these issues, experience a shared sense of belonging within this professional community, and engage within a mentoring framework that models what has been proven to be an effective STEM strategy, namely, women leading women.

Unable to travel to Hawaii in May 2020 for our original plans, the TRELIS Leadership team revisioned and shifted its content to a series of online interactive sessions that will occur between May 2020 and spring 2021. 

Congratulations to those accepted to be part of our 2020 TRELIS cohort!
