What is the BA Speaker Series?:
The BA Speakers Series hosts PhDs that have transitioned to non-academic careers and experts that help PhDs in this process. Each day of the series we will have a speaker from a different field who will give their insights on transitioning out of academia, what it is like to work in their field of expertise and strategies for building transferable skills such as networking. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions to these experts as part of an informal discussion during this event. Details below.
January 28th, 5-6pm
Zoom. RSVP for Zoom details. Attendance will be capped at the first 30 RSVPs in order to promote discussion.
