Pre-conference skills building workshops

Friday, December 2 

8:00 am

Mentoring 101: How to get what you need to thrive in the academy
Invitation only
150 minutes (Includes breakfast)

In this workshop, we challenge the conventional wisdom about mentoring and present a framework for re-imagining mentoring with the goal of helping faculty thrive in the academy. Participants will map their current mentoring network, identify pressing areas of unmet needs, and create a plan to expand their existing mentoring network.

12:00 pm

Family planning billing and finance workshop
150 minutes (includes lunch)

Learn and practice in this interactive billing and finance workshop tailored to family planning care. Attendees apply this knowledge through diagnostic and procedural coding in basic and complex scenarios. The engaged audience member will leave with a greater understanding of the revenue cycle and tools for establishing a cash package.

12:00 pm

Level up your advocacy: Testimony training
150 minutes (includes lunch)

Providers are essential voices as policymakers consider action to promote reproductive health and measures that restrict access. Learn from providers who have testified at the federal and state levels, in person and virtually. Practice writing statements, using pivots, handling tough questions, and learn how to find opportunities to testify.

12:00 pm

Intersectional mentoring: An interactive exploration of institutional racism, power, and positionality for mentors
150 minutes (includes lunch)

We will demonstrate the importance of an intersectional lens and a racially literate analysis of the barriers and the escalators to leadership for URiMs/ BIPOC. We will highlight the impact mentors can have when they use their social capital to advance equity in family planning with novel frameworks.

12:00 pm

Social science on abortion in the wake of the Dobbs ruling: A working session
150 minutes (includes lunch)

Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization case, people across the US will continue to need abortion care. Researchers will continue to work as a community to take action for just and equitable abortion, informed by science. This pre-conference session aims to cultivate coordination between ongoing research efforts and share tools and approaches with the awareness that research practice must transform in response to seismic shifts in the US legal abortion landscape. Organized around three entry points for discussion—methodology, outcomes, and geographic patterns—the session will use mini-panels as a springboard for discussion, with the opportunity to connect with other social science researchers in focused roundtables.
