What an attendee said about this ACS Webinar!

This was helpful in communicating events planned for the Spring meeting as well as information about some of the softer skills and development within our scientific communities. Christina Bodurow was an excellent moderator and Jayshree Seth had some great insights to share. I liked to format, which was like a fireside chat.
