GPDN Annual Conference

In conjunction with the CAGS Annual Conference, the GPDN hosts a special conference for professionals who support graduate and postdoctoral development. The aim is to share best practices, and engage in discussion on issues in our field. 

2020 Virtual Conference: Registration now open!

Dates: Wednesday November 18 and Thursday November 19, 2020 from approximately 1pm-6pm EST.
Due to Covid-19, this year we will be going virtual -all sessions will be held on Zoom. 

The theme for the 2020 conference is Diversifying our Programs for Changing Times.

We are thrilled that Neil Price will be delivering the keynote, titled: Re-imagining the academy: moving beyond ineffective approaches to equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI). Additionally, there will be a series of member generated lightning talks (10min each) followed by roundtable discussions to dive deeper into the topics that you are most interested in. Check out the agenda (which is still being updated) for more details!
