Add to Calendar 03/09/2020 2:00 PM 03/09/2020 2:00 PM Australia/Sydney The stories we tell ourselves as STEMM leaders

Unquestionably, this is a complex, volatile, uncertain and chaotic time. The COVID-19 pandemic is leading to unprecedented levels of job uncertainty, anxiety and depression. 

While facing these challenges, the research workforce has also been called to contribute to the pandemic response. These competing trials can paint a bleak picture for early- and mid-career researchers, making them feel they are at the mercy of these unprecedented changes and insurmountable obstacles. 

The Early- and Mid-Career Researcher (EMCR) Forum is working to support the EMCR community and keep researchers connected throughout COVID-19. The EMCR Forum is hosting designed to address the needs of EMCRs in Australia and support their careers during this crucial time. 

The is an opportunity for EMCRs to analyse their current situation, think about what is within their control and search for the tools to control the narrative of their story.

Join our facilitator, Fabian Dattner to discuss key questions that can help your journey to recovery:

  • What if our ability to optimise what is happening – is least of all about the virus, funding and jobs, and most of all about the stories we tell ourselves? 
  • How are we talking to each other? 
  • What language are we using?
  • Do we know what we are saying is true; about ourselves, others, the context we are working in? 
  • How does believing what we tell ourselves make us feel?
  • Do we know how to change our stories, so they help us rather than increasing our burdens?
