Pathways to Success Workshop
Pathways to Success Workshop: exploring challenges and identifying resources to help students, faculty, and professionals create a vision of success
Dr Leung has been invited to a variety of venues to present her signature workshop aimed at encouraging students, faculty, and professionals to find and pursue their passion in science. This workshop offers participants insights and concrete approaches for navigating pathways to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) career success. Incorporating individual reflection and discussion, the workshop helps participants develop fundamental representations and critical assessments of pathways through academia and towards fulfilling their aspirations in today’s technology-driven world. Participants visualize their pathways from the past through the present and into their future. They identify ways to find and recognize obstacles and techniques and resources to overcome them. This workshop is ideal for students seeking inspiration and guidance for achieving their dreams. Dr. Leung has presented this workshop at the Tapia Celebration in Computing conference, the SC09 Broader Engagement program, at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and most recently at the SIAM CSE15 Broader Engagement program.
“The most valuable experience I got was the one of having the opportunity to express myself through drawing. Sometimes it is difficult for me to tell other people about the circumstances in which my family and I have lived. With this drawing activity, I was able to describe my story to the people at my table.”
Here’s what Yashema Mack has to say about the workshop.
