Webster’s dictionary defines conflict as a sharp disagreement or opposition of interests or ideas. Conflict is a part of our everyday personal lives, as well as professional lives, including people working in government, industry, academia, and consulting sectors. It has been estimated that managers and HR spend at least 25 percent of their time resolving workplace conflicts. Major impacts of unresolved conflicts may include lower performance and emotional stress of the parties involved. To this end, conflict resolution can be used to resolve or reach a peaceful and equative resolution to a conflict. The goal of the present webinar is to provide insights and simple strategies that can be implemented as part of the conflict resolution process by the parties involved across different workforce sectors. The overall goal of the Education Committee of the Hispanic Organization of Toxicologists (HOT) is to contribute with the professional development to our community at large.

2022 Hispanic Organization of Toxicologists Webinar: Immigration Journey of International Students and Early Career Post-doctorates in the United States

According to data from the Survey of Graduate Students and Post-doctorates in Science and Engineering from the National Science Foundation (2015), more than 50% of the 64,000 postdocs working in the US, are international. This community often faces questions and challenging situations while transitioning to the job market. This webinar attempts to inform international post-doctorates and early career scientists about VISA categories, eligibility, requisites, and processing times. This webinar is not intended to provide legal advice in any of the topics, rather it will serve as a resource to be used for career planning of international students and by institution/organization staff who want to open an opportunity to these talented people with unique skills.
