The ESA Water Cooler

The ESA Water Cooler Chats are held with an  easy informal style where we can see each other, talk about the science, work, and struggles or share resources. It’s like a radio talk show except you can interact live – online. 

Bring your favorite beverage!

  • How can I learn to be a better negotiator?
    April 3, 2024 @ 3:00 pm ET
    We ecologists all need to negotiate for our jobs, our benefits, collaborations, contracts, and sometimes just in human interactions. Come to learn some tips and tricks to be a better negotiator, hear some panelists discuss their negotiating experiences, and ask questions and discuss successful negotiation. Do you have negotiations coming up in your future? Do you have positive or negative negotiating experiences to share? What do you want to learn about negotiating? This watercooler is intended for everyone: early career ecologists, their mentors, and experienced professionals who have tips to pass on or who are looking for tips to improve. Grab your favorite beverage and join the ESA Education Committee in the conversation about negotiating!
