Then come and join us for our upcoming virtual SFU-UBC PDA coffee socials this fall. Kids/pets/partners/friends are welcome!!
Join us every Tuesday from 2-3pm starting next week, October 13: Register Here!
Our discussion topics will include:
– International Postdocs (Oct 13, 2-3 pm): Are you an international postdoc? Do you have questions about immigration or funding or are you struggling with being far away from friends and family during these difficult times? Do you just want to connect with other newcomers to Canada? – We got you covered! This session will be joined by a certified immigration consultant.
– Postdocs with kids (Oct 20, 2-3 pm): We can all agree that postdocs with kids are facing some special challenges, especially during the pandemic. Postdoc parents, this is your place to chat about child care, work/life balance, working from home… and to meet other postdocs with kids to make new connections!
– New to Vancouver (Oct 27, 2-3 pm): Are you new to Vancouver? Maybe moved here during the pandemic?? Meet other postdocs to make new connections and to exchange ideas about what to explore in Vancouver!
– Coping with COVID-19 – What keeps you happy? (Nov 3, 2-3 pm): COVID-19 isn’t going away soon – what are your tips and strategies for coping with the new stresses brought on by a global pandemic? Exchange stories, worries and ideas and establish some new connections. We can all use some good socialising these days, especially during the gloomy months of fall.
