Individual Development Plans (IDPs) have been used to support the career and professional development of individuals in setting career and training milestones through an iterative process of self-assessment, skill-strengthening, career exploration, and goal setting. This workshop will help participants to use the IDP framework to develop a tentative career plan that reflects their background, experiences, and career aspirations. This event is free, part of the ACS Spring and Fall meetings, for ACS Members and non-members.

The ChemIDP workshop may also be hosted by institutions for their students and postdocs for a fee. If you are interested in hosting this workshop, please contact Leslie Reynoso at
