The Plant Biology Graduate Student Association is hosting an “alternative” career development event — in reflection on the small percentage of PhDs who are likely to remain in academia after graduating. We are hosting a Q&A panel of leaders in the IP/innovation space with a networking social to follow. The event will take place on Friday March 15th from 3-5PM in Weill Hall 224.
The goals of the event are to give attendees a sense of both what their roles might be if they pursue this type of career and the types of non-science professionals with whom they would be working. We are inviting graduate students in diverse fields to participate to create opportunities to practice sharing our work with non-expert professionals and recognize the power of interdisciplinary dialogue.
