The GRC Power Hour™
In 2016, GRC introduced the Power Hour. This informal session for all attendees gives communities the opportunity to discuss challenges women face in science and issues of diversity and inclusion. The program supports the professional growth of all members of our communities by providing an open forum for discussion and mentoring.
The program has proven incredibly popular. Chairs select a woman from their community to serve as the organizer for the session and each host tailors the program format to fit the needs of their community. GRC provides suggested talking points and additional resources to help them get started.
"The session was tremendously valuable because participants of different stages and scientific career and representing both genders as well as different minorities exchanged their perspectives."
"The program was valuable because it provided the opportunity for networking and community building, and for sharing ideas and strategies."
