Time Management and Workplace Culture: Do longer hours mean higher productivity and increased passion? (Sponsored by FASEBRegister here.

Tuesday, Aug. 20, 2019 at 5 p.m. Pacific Time

There is an unspoken perception within the scientific community: if you aren't working at least 60 hours a week, then you are less productive and passionate about your research. This has led to a culture in which scientists often become competitive and brag about their excessive time spent in lab and display their exhaustion like a badge of honor. This webinar will explore how long hours in the lab became the norm and the effects that it has on scientists. This webinar will also provide tips on how to maximize productivity in lab and maintain a healthy work-life balance. Register here.
