The workshop is part of the Researcher Communication Series workshops offered to graduate students through the Faculty of Graduate Studies, VITAE Program.
Each skills-focused workshop is designed to offer conversations about the value, skills and opportunities to rehearse these skills across any work setting. It starts by exploring communication strategies to enhance your role as a junior researcher, and then show you how these same skills are highly valued in the world of work.
