Career Paths: Academic Workforce Development
Wednesday, October 13, 2021, 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM EDT
As Academia produces more scientifically trained individuals, various STEM professionals have pivoted and transitioned into positions that allow them to create inclusive programs that support and nurture early career researchers (ECRs). These programs focus on bridging skills gaps for ECRs to guide them through their career decisions.
During this webinar panelists will discuss how STEM professionals can use their problem-solving skills to create programs and opportunities that help diverse STEM talent succeed professionally and create a culture that makes STEM accessible for all.
During this panel you will hear about:
- Opportunities available in a career in STEM workforce development
- How scientists create programs to support diverse STEM talent
- Challenges to consider when pursuing this career path
The event will be followed by a virtual networking opportunity with the panelists at 6:30 PM.
If you have specific questions you would like the panelists to address during the discussion – please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will incorporate them into this conversation.
