Complete Conflict Competence Training for Graduate Students and Postdocs

Tuesday, January 24th, 9am to 12:30pm, Graduate Center, Room 1230, Walker Hall
A pizza lunch will be available for all who register. Register here.
While conflict is inevitable, how we respond to it helps to shape how it develops. With proven conflict management techniques, you can minimize the negative impact of conflict, keep relationships on track, and lower your stress. In this workshop, you will learn and practice strategies to effectively prevent and manage conflict. Techniques covered include: de-escalating emotionally-charged situations, successfully communicating your needs and lowering others’ defenses. You will have the opportunity to put these strategies into practice by developing approaches to realistic conflict scenarios. This workshop consists of 1) a 3-hour interactive instruction session that substitutes for the following microbadges: Understanding and Recognizing Conflict, Preparing to Address Conflict, and Addressing Conflict; and (2) a 1.5-hour practice session, for which learners will earn the Conflict Management Practice Microbadge. Upon completion of this workshop, learners will earn the Conflict Competence Pathway Micro-credential.

Building a Better Fieldwork Future: Preventing Sexual Harassment and Assault in the Field Sciences

Tuesday, February 7th, Noon-1:30pm, Online - Register for Zoom link: https://tinyurl.com/W23FieldSafety 
Fieldwork is an important and often necessary component of many scientific disciplines, yet research suggests that it presents a high-risk setting for incidents of sexual harassment and assault. Through a series of practical intervention scenarios, this workshop guides participants on how to be active and engaged bystanders, how to report incidents, and how to plan field settings to minimize risk. Armed with these tools, participants can play a role in ensuring that field settings are safer, more equitable, and more welcoming for the next generation of field scientists. Facilitator: Heather Spaulding, UC Davis EH&S Field Research Safety Professional

Responsible Conduct of Research Series

The objective of the Responsible Conduct of Research program is to provide graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, faculty, staff and NSF funded undergraduate students with information, training, and tools to address the increasingly complex issues that they will confront during their careers. The RCR program may be used to satisfy NIH, NSF, and USDA-NIFA training grant requirements for the responsible and ethical conduct of research training programs.
