Committee on Career Development Plans Pre-JSM Networking Event

1 July 2022 No Comment
Volunteers Wanted
The ASA CCD needs mid- to late-career professionals from academia, industry, and government to attend the JSM networking event, “Networking Like a Pro: A Guided Networking Session,” and provide students and early-career statisticians opportunities to practice networking. Sign up to volunteer.

The ASA CCD will host a workshop, titled “How to Get the Most Out of Conferences and JSM,” July 28 from 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. ET. During this free virtual event, first-time Joint Statistical Meetings attendees will practice professional networking with members of the ASA CCD and interact with colleagues in small group settings. These tips and tricks are applicable to many conferences and professional events, so you do not have to be registered for JSM 2022 to attend. Sign up in advance.

Also, the ASA CCD will host an in-person networking event at JSM 2022, titled “Networking Like a Pro: A Guided Networking Session.” This event will take place August 7 from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. and feature statisticians and data scientists from academia, the federal government, and the private sector. Attendees will gain expert perspectives on how to build professional relationships. Featured statisticians include Dionne Price, ASA president-elect; David Morganstein, former ASA president and former vice president of Westat; and Montserrat Fuentes, president of St. Edward’s University. Attendees must be registered for JSM 2022 to attend.

Finally, as part of JSM’s Diversity Workshop and Mentoring Program, the ASA CCD is co-hosting a panel, titled “From the Horse’s Mouth: How Mentoring Shaped My Career and How It Can Shape Yours, Too!” The panel will be held at 8:00 a.m. on August 8 and feature statisticians discussing how mentoring positively affected their careers. The ASA CCD is co-hosting this panel with the ASA’s Committee on Minorities in Statistics and Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Outreach Group.
