Networking: Building the Next Generation of Research Administrators
Wednesday, September 20 | 1:40p – 2:10p PT | Main Stage
Hosted by Shacey Temperly, Senior Manager at Attain Partners
Competition for talented research administrators is fierce. The move toward remote work in the field has increased the number of positions that candidates are eligible for without relocating. This, combined with the realities of an aging workforce, means that the field is bracing for even larger amounts of turnover.
While this competitive environment is great for experienced research administrators looking to grow in their careers, it has made hiring and staffing sponsored program offices more difficult for institutions. How do we, as a field, prepare for this much turnover? What steps can we take to recruit younger workers to work as research administrators? What is the best way to address the training needs of so many new research administrators? How do we develop a continual pipeline of well–prepared staff?
Join Attain Partners experts to discuss these important issues and plan for the future of research administration.

Fear of the Unknown: How a Change Management Program Can Save Your Project
Thursday, September 21 | 10:20a – 11a PT | Track 3
Hosted by Ivonne Kalinski, Senior Associate at Attain Partners, and Kathleen Halley-Octa, Senior Consultant at Attain Partners
Is your institution implementing a new system, updating business processes, or updating your organizational structure?
Projects like these can easily be derailed by fear and uncertainty if you aren’t engaging stakeholders during the decision–making process, ultimately leading to failed implementations or low morale among your staff.
During this session, we will discuss the value of change management and share how Attain Partners can help you convert even the strongest resistors of change.
