Careers Advice from Diverse Perspectives

Tuesday May 28th | Fletcher Challenge Theatre 1900 | 17:45-18:45

Panellists from a variety of backgrounds will talk about their personal experience of how they reached their current position, the barriers they overcame on the way, and how our community can work together to increase diversity and inclusion. The intention is neither to shy away from nor to trivialize negative experiences, but to emphasize what can be learned from them and how obstacles can be overcome. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.
