beyond academia image

Our annual flagship conference is a two-day event with around 100 Ph.D. speakers who successfully transitioned to non-academic careers in a variety of fields including STEM as well as humanities and social sciences. As part of our conference we’ll have keynote lectures, panels and professional development workshops aimed at educating and preparing you to transition to careers outside of academia. This year, we are honored to host these amazing keynote speakers:

  • Dr. Karen Kelsky (Cultural Anthropology Ph.D.; Founder and CEO of The Professor Is In.)
  • Dr. Jennifer R. Cohen (Biochemistry, Cellular and Molecular Biology Ph.D.; Associate Director for Biosciences Diversity Programs at Stanford University School of Medicine)

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this event will be fully virtual (powered by Hopin). Registration is free and open to all graduate students and postdocs.
