Event Details

Featuring: Isaiah Hankel, PhD, Founder & CEO, The Cheeky Scientist

Description: Scientists, and PhDs in general, rarely think of themselves as leaders. Instead, they are often content to consider themselves contributors. While it is true that scientists often serve a small role in very large undertakings, they are by no means meant to remain as contributors to the visions of others. Scientists are meant to lead. Unfortunately, this is rarely expected of today’s scientists, in part because leadership is not something many scientists receive adequate training for inside of the academic system or outside of it. As a scientist, no matter what the next career step is, one thing is for certain: to be truly successful, you must lead. Scientific leadership today requires you to continuously develop not only your technical skills, but also your transferable skills. You must prioritize your efforts to build credibility in new academic and non-academic sectors, establish references, generate referrals and internal sponsors. You must learn how to create a viable vision. Science Leadership in the 21st Century will show you how to leverage your scientific expertise to become the leader you were meant to be in the world.
- We will raffle off copies of Isaiah's book "Black Hole Focus" at the event -
