Invite everyone in your graduate program group to attend a Bold Adulting workshop Success in Grad School, customized for your group! Attendees will learn about common grad student experiences, such as perfectionism, making progress on goals, interpersonal conflicts, career development, and mental health. There will be opportunities to share and hear what your fellow grad students are going through, and you can even share anonymously!

Booking a workshop (one 3-hour session) for your program costs $3000. Multiple programs can share costs by booking a workshop together. Please see additional details.

Notes for introverts and private people: Although workshop activities are designed to foster community and learn from each other, most activities can be done solo, if you prefer. No attendee will be required to share anything they don’t want to.

Dates and times can be adjusted, if needed.

How to feel better about yourself: 14 Tips

The full speech I gave to the San Diego chapter of the Society of Women Engineers about how to feel good enough is available as a Bold Adulting podcast episode.

How I love my failures

Note - This version of the How I Love My Failures story includes language that assumes weight loss is a healthy goal. I have since reconsidered my perspective on weight control, but the larger message of the story is still a good one: failure is nothing to be ashamed of.
