Stepping Out of the Narrow Path: Exploring Experiences Outside Academia

Cognitive science engages a range of skills and perspectives that are in demand in many settings. Yet, early career researchers, as well as more advanced academics, often struggle to find opportunities to share their skills. Our panel of speakers brings a wealth of experience in different sectors outside the traditional academic path. Join the workshop to hear them share stories of their paths. Stay for the social hour and speed mentoring sessions.
