Advocacy

What do we do?

The Advocacy Committee advocates on behalf of postdocs to address unmet needs in the postdoc community, including those related to inclusion, diversity and their general wellbeing, and identify areas where the YPA can support postdocs to enrich their experience at Yale University. 

How can you get involved?

E-mail either of the Advocacy subcommittee coordinators with any great ideas you have or to find out more about what you can do to get more involved!
