Berkeley — Researcher Coffee Hour @ Evans Hall (outdoor patio on the side that faces Stanley)
Oct 11 @ 2:00 pm

Drop by to have a cup of coffee and connect with fellow researchers, get answers to any questions you may have about rights and benefits, and discuss ways that we can further strengthen our research community!

We’ve made Berkeley a great place to be a Postdoc because we work together to advocate for ourselves and our research community, and that’s possible because Postdocs overwhelmingly choose to become members. If you aren’t a member of our union yet, click here!

Hope to see you there!
