Opportunities are everywhere and you never know who you'll meet. That's why it's important to have a well-crafted pitch that you can easily share with others. This interactive workshop, led by Bri McWhorter from Activate to Captivate, will show you how to craft an engaging pitch about yourself and your work. Bri will provide techniques to help you organize and distill your ideas and then you'll practice the tips in pairs throughout the workshop. This session is perfect for those participating in the Grad Slam Showcase and is also useful during interviews and networking. It is open to graduate students and postdocs from any discipline.

The GSRC is committed to providing access and reasonable accommodation for individuals with disabilities. For information or to request disability accommodation, please email Baron Haber at
