During this interactive webinar, a group of panelists will describe how they successfully launched their mental health initiatives for STEM graduates and early career scientists and the impacts of those programs on their campus. The panel will also provide advice on launching similar initiatives and how the STEM community in general can better support the mental health of graduate students.

Webinar: AGU/AGI Heads and Chairs: From intro geoscience to upper level courses: Successes and failures of curricular revisions
The AGU Heads and Chairs program and the American Geosciences Institute are pleased to be offering a free online webinar and discussion about efforts in curricular reform in undergraduate geoscience programs, and their successes and failures. Please join Aley El-Shazly (Marshall University) as he shares his program’s experiences with curricular reform and to join a community discussion of how curricular reform efforts have progressed in light of the recent Vision and Change document.
Legislators have a lot on their plates. How then do we make sure that science rises to the top of their priorities (i.e., how do we get their attention)?
Please join Rachel Beane (Bowdoin College), Eric Baer (Highline College), and Vernon Morris (Arizona State University) to learn about recent student diversity trends and participate in a conversation about making our discipline more accessible, inclusive, and equitable.

Outside of academia, atmospheric scientists hold a wide variety of careers in the private sector; however, most graduate students and postdocs have limited exposure to scientists who hold these positions. The goal of this webinar is to introduce early career atmospheric scientists to career opportunities in the private sector and explore how the responsibilities and work environments differ from those in academia.
