These workshops are held throughout the year and have covered the following topics:

  • Effective Virtual Presentations
  • Giving and Receiving Feedback
  • How and When to Say "No and "Yes" in Career and in Life
  • Knowing and Using Your Strengths
  • Negotiation Skills
  • Overcoming Unintended Bias and Other Cognitive Errors

OFDD also provides an “On-Demand Series” of workshops on topics including mentorship, team-building, bias, and inclusion seminars to departments and groups across Stanford Medicine upon request.

Other skills-building workshops are offered across Stanford from the main campus Office of Faculty Development and from the Stanford Graduate School of Business

Past skills-building workshops include the Faculty Fireside Chat Series.
