JSG Around the World

Welcome to JSG Around the World, a monthly seminar dedicated to fostering inclusivity of our international community, including students, postdocs, staff, and faculty! The seminar serves as a space for everyone at JSG (not just those from outside the U.S.) to share and create awareness of their culture, background, and international experiences.

Seminars are monthly on Fridays, from 1-2 pm on Zoom. Please contact organizers Eirini Poulaki and Cat Ross if interested!
