UCLA Business of Science Center and AWiSE will host two panels this quarter: the first will focus on business/consulting careers, while the second will focus on education/outreach opportunities. All of our panelists earned their PhDs in STEM fields and will tell us about their experiences transitioning to jobs outside of academia.
The panel discussion will start at 4 pm and will be followed by a networking hour. Light refreshments provided.
Following each "Beyond Your PhD" event, we will be hosting an intimate mentoring dinner with two panelists! As of February 20th, attendees for the February 24th dinner have been selected.
