Social Networking Opportunities at SSHD

We will have a number of social networking events at SSHD.  We will send around sign- up sheets to the registrants probably this summer, but we wanted to alert attendees to this opportunity.

Friday - Emerging Scholars Informational and Networking Lunch

During the meeting, lunch will be provided and attendees will hear about opportunities within SSHD for Emerging Scholars, e.g., positions on committees and professional development webinars. Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet multiple SSHD committee chairs and ask questions about the society. The meeting will conclude with an open discussion session and a networking opportunity. All emerging scholars attending the conference are invited and welcome to attend this event.

Friday Evening – Reception.  This event is open to everyone!   Come and mingle with your colleagues at SSHD, as well as the keynote speakers!  Free!!

Saturday – Emerging Scholars/Mentors Dinner

This dinner provides a unique opportunity for Emerging Scholars to meet and interact with leading scholars in the field of development science in a low-key, casual setting. Efforts are made to seat Emerging Scholars with or near leading scholars with similar interests. The goals of the dinner are to provide networking opportunities, facilitate career development interactions, and most of all energize the next generation of developmental scientists.
