Sarima will be offering access to webinars on relevant RM and I&TT topics throughout the year.
The first webinar in this series has been provided by our sister organization, CARA (Canadian Association for Research Administrators) and deals with “Purposeful Networking”
The act of networking typically causes negative feelings such as fear or anxiety and can seem superficial and meaningless. Purposeful networking helps you to create a true community, a lifelong resource with real, meaningful, and mutually beneficial connections. This session will explore how to establish and maintain a purposeful network, as well as practical ways to get started. We talk about ways to make your networking more effective. In advance of the session, please think about past events where you’ve found networking challenging, or upcoming events for which you’d like to prepare.
