Location: Boston Campus, M&V 412
Time: Friday, January 8th from 4-5pm with pizza and networking after Steve’s talk!
Join us for a workshop on managing impostor syndrome and perfectionism during your career with Steven Steinke, LICSW and staff clinician at Harvard University Health Services. Steve has been serving the Harvard University graduate population since 2008 and has counseled many researchers on how to channel their perfectionistic drives to benefit, rather than harm their personal and professional lives.
Many graduate students and postdocs often feel inadequate or not competitive with their peers, despite years of advanced training. These feelings often curb exploration and the courage to delve into new experiences, in fear of exposing failure, ultimately harming the career potential of extremely talented and driven scientists and other researchers.
The wonderful Joanne Kamens, Executive Director of Addgene gave an excellent seminar on Mentoring 101: using mentoring to advance your career.
Join your fellow postdocs from Tufts, MGH, HSPH, Joslin, MIT, Dana Farber and Children’s Hospital in a fun Halloween Party at Lir!
We’ll have great food, an optional costume contest and a cash bar.
Come join us and meet some cool postdocs from other universities in the Boston area!

What is a Mentoring Circle?
A Mentoring Circle consists of several mentees with STEM, Humanties or Social Science backgrounds swho are committed to meeting monthly to support one another with support, advice, and information. Each circle will be directed by an experienced mentor.
Who will be in my circle?
The MASS AWIS mentoring committee will review submitted surveys and match you with a circle based on interest, career goals, geography, and other factors.
What will we talk about? Are we just going to sit around and complain?
The mentoring circle is a supportive forum to constructively resolve all issues, but the focus is on career and personal growth. The group decide the details of scheduling and we will provide ideas and articles to help start conversations within your circle. All participants should be willing to both give and get professional and personal support from others in their circle. Mentors will aid in directing conversational topics within the circle and by sharing their knowledge and experience.
