Happenings & Highlights from the Nova Integration Hub

Happy summer! Temperatures are rising, summer fun is here, and things are buzzing in the Hub. Here’s a summary of what’s been going on. 

New Mental Health and Emotional Well-Being Discussion Topic and Group 

We are excited to announce two new spaces in the Hub for discussion and collaboration around mental health and emotional well-being. We look forward to the stories, ideas, news, and opportunities that will be shared to spark thought and action around improving mental health and cultivating a sense of holistic well-being. Check out what’s being discussed already and join in on the conversations — or start your own!

Call for Feedback and Core Author Interest

One of our users is soliciting feedback and accepting consortium or core authors for a manuscript titled, “Running a queer- and trans-inclusive faculty hiring process.” Today is the last day for input and they are particularly interested in capturing feedback from scientists outside of the U.S. See the post from Sue Ishaq with a link to the manuscript and Feedback form.
