"But I don't wanna! How group fun can increase motivation for the un-enjoyable." Dec 12, 6 PM

Stefanie M. Tignor is a doctoral student in social and personality psychology at Northeastern University in Boston. Prior to attending Northeastern, Stefanie graduated summa cum laude with a major in psychology from Binghamton University in 2010. Broadly, her current research examines self- and interpersonal processes in conjunction with judgmental bias and accuracy. More specifically, she is interested in the impact of personality on emotional experience, person perception and behavior, and how these individual differences can be leveraged to promote behavior change. She has presented her work at national conferences, including those for the Society for Personality and Social Psychology and the Association for Consumer Research.

Just in time for exams and holidays, learn about how to motivate yourself and others.

New research Building (NRB), Harvard Medical School, 77 Avenue Louis Pasteur, 4th floor, Room 457 Refreshments will be served. Everyone is welcome!

Join GWIS for Scholars Night at Photograph 51, Feb 23
In 1951, British biophysicist Rosalind Franklin became a research associate at King’s College in London, where her X-ray imaging revealed DNA’s double helix structure, leading to the Nobel Prize for Francis Crick, James Dewey Watson, and Maurice Wilkins. As told with wit and urgency by a chorus of scientists who relive the competitive chase to be the first to map the DNA molecule, Photograph 51 is the story of the fiercely independent spirit of a young, ambitious scientist and her unsung, trailblazing achievements. Winner of the 2008 Stage International Script Competition for Best New Play About Science & Technology.
Produced by The Nora Theatre Company.

Two Hours that will Make You a Better Speaker
Tuesday, March 18, 2008, 6:30 PM
412 Mugar Hall, Northeastern University
Beryl Loeb brings over twenty-five years of communication, leadership, and management skill-building experience to her current role as Loeb Group founder, senior-level consultant, trainer, and facilitator. This workshop will help make you a better speaker! You will learn to: 1. Engage your audience with your passion and conviction. 2. Connect emotionally – telling a story rather than reciting a list of bulleted points. 3. Think of your speech or presentation as a conversation – and constantly answer the questions, “so what?” and “who cares?”
Advance Assignment: Everyone attending this workshop needs to prepare a very brief (one to two-minute) mini-presentation (no slides please) describing a time when you were a particularly successful speaker (either you just “felt it” or received positive feedback). During your mini presentation you need to convey one reason for why you were effective. PLUS…For those interested in professional critique of the slides you currently use in your presentations, please bring 20 copies (color preferred) of a printout of your typical slides. We'll dedicate a portion of our workshop to exploring ways to enhance the impact of your slides.

Professor of Biology at MIT and among her many honors is her membership in the National Academy of Sciences. She is also an Honorary Member of SDE/GWIS. Professor Hopkins has made outstanding contributions to the fields of vertebrate developmental biology, retroviral genetics and bacteriophage genetics.
Professor Hopkins was also the driving force in establishing the MIT Committees on Women Faculty in the School of Science.
