We will select up to 20 recent graduates (prioritized), graduate students, and undergraduate students to participate in this workshop. Selection will be based on your AAG membership status, your career needs, and time of registration. If you are selected, we will notify you ahead of the workshop and provide you all the workshop details and session links. If you are selected, the expectation is that you will participate in all sessions of the workshop.
This workshop is relevant to all types of participants, but the participants who are pre/early career will gain the most benefit from the workshop. We expect these would be geography students within six months to a year of graduation or are relatively recent graduates of undergraduate or graduate programs.
