Resources Think Tank

Wednesday, November 2, 2022

10:00 A.M. - 11:00 A.M.


Come share your best resources and walk away with some new favorites! Join us for an informal and interactive discussion about research resources with Dave Owens and Meghan Hakanson. The session will provide an opportunity for participants to share both free and paid resources related to various topics utilizing Jamboard, a free digital whiteboard that lets participants collaborate in real time. Some the topics we’ll cover include: contact information, salary and compensation, stock holdings, philanthropic giving, international resources, and more! Researchers and Prospect Managers at all experience levels are welcome. The Jamboard slides will be shared with everyone after the session. This session will not be recorded.
