Work…family…career planning…hobbies. How can you take that dream engineering job and ensure you don’t put the rest of your life on hold or on the back burner? Dr. Christine Grant, Academic Resilience Strategist, Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Associate Dean of Faculty Advancement at the North Carolina State College of Engineering shows you how in Engineering Village’s Navigating Your Engineereing Career Path webinar, now archived and available for viewing free of charge.         

Dr. Grant, coeditor of “Success Strategies From Women in Stem: A Portable Mentor” has moved from mentoring to coaching, and she shared, for the first time, her unique conceptual framework to help women in engineering integrate all the facets of their lives—without losing parts of themselves in the process.

 

Dr. Grant

Addressing women at all stages of their careers (“career seasons”), she demonstrated how to use “the bubble process” to set priorities for the activities you are passionate about in your professional and personal lives. This dynamic process enables you to recognize how and where you spend most of your time, and how to move in and out of the  different realms of your life to achieve better integration.

As you watch the webinar, you are invited to try the process yourself in real time using a worksheet. Don’t miss this fascinating, practical approach to work-life integration, which can help you effectively, and less stressfully, navigate your engineering career path.

Rano Burkhanova, Elsevier’s Head of Talent Development Europe and Global Lead for the EDGE gender diversity program implementation at Elsevier followed with a detailed look at Elsevier’s efforts to become more gender balanced across the organization and to foster a more inclusive environment.
