Meeting for Senior Scientists: "Supporting pregnant students while promoting scientific progress" by Dr. Ruth Shouval

In this meeting we will discuss ways for mentoring pregnant female students (and in general students who are about to become parents). The mentoring process in such cases is exciting but can also be complex - both for the students and for the PIs. The meeting is designed to help you as mentors to deal with these situations effectively, supporting the student while also maintaining scientific productivity. This is a delicate topic, and the goal of this meeting is to discuss all aspects of dealing with this situation openly, for the benefit of Pis and students.
