March 11th, 2022: Times Up! Time Management Workshop with Tommy Acierno
There’s no shortage of time management strategies out there in the world. Why, then, are we not masters of time management? Because we’re not approaching time management from the INSIDE OUT! We start with our attitudes about time first and then master time management with effective goal-setting strategies.

Why Braiding Your River?
From this piece by CIRES authors and colleagues, the braided river framework allows us to perceive varied pathways into and within STEM careers and to better appreciate evolving occupational goals, and opportunities for lifelong continuing education. We aim to normalize the idea of individuals changing pace and direction as circumstances and opportunities arise, and create support structures that accommodate and empower people.
