AAAS hosted its second webinar on "Networking for Successful International Research Collaborations." Panelists were four female faculty in STEM from Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) who were awarded travel grants, to attend the Gender Summit 7 (GS7) in Germany.
They discussed their networking strategy and outreach to researchers and academia in Germany. Networking is a reiterative process of trial, success and failure, where some results can be surprisingly rewarding and others disappointing. Traveling as a group and having the same goal, allowed AAAS delegates to GS7 to merge their efforts and start also planning for reaching out to foreign collaborators, in a collective way. In fact, they prepared a proposal to form a panel on gender issues in STEM, for a symposium to be held in Taiwan, in June 2016.
