In the week of 8th February 2021, Stemettes delivered another session in the Associate Bootcamp’s Skill Season. Running over 5 days, the Academia Bootcamp offered sessions on presentation skills, networking practice, finding a research niche, sustaining a career in academia, and tools of the academic trade.

Over the five days, seven associates attended to learn more and pick up skills in Academia. They rated the event 9.3 out of 10 for both how useful they found it and how much they enjoyed it.
“A valuable thing I learnt was the importance of networking with others who don’t share the same interests as you”
What a way to finish the week on a Friday afternoon by talking about #networking at @Stemettes Academia Bootcamp!
