Connection Corners is an event for trainees, established in 2013 at the annual Society for Reproductive Investigation (SRI) meeting. During this event, accomplished senior members are invited to host discussions at tables with topics that are relatable and of interest to attendees at diverse stages in their careers. These open-ended “chats” provide a casual environment to interact, and facilitate networking between meeting attendees, especially amongst trainees.
Join us for a virtual networking opportunity! Modeled after the in-person Connection Corners event that has become a staple of the Annual Meeting, there will be three breakout groups, featuring different topics of conversation, of which attendees will select two that they would like to attend. Within these breakout groups, you will be able to interact with group mentors, and ask your specific questions.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
