Save the Date! Spring 2022 Networking Event

This spring we will host our Annual Networking Event on March 17th from 5:30-7:30pm ET using the Gather.Town platform.

The goal of our networking event is to provide a platform for graduate level trainees and upper level college students to network with a diverse panel of STEM professionals in both academia and outside of academia.

“Building your brand.”

The theme for Beyond the PhD’s 2022 Networking Event

We chose this theme in order to help students and trainees learn best practices for identifying and promoting their personal brand to be effective during the job search process. To achieve this goal (1) we will host a variety of STEM professionals with diverse career paths and (2) invited Amy Aines to give a Keynote presentation on how to effectively communicate.

Amy Aines Found of Talking STEM- Building Vital Communication Skills to Launch Successful Career. Title of presentation TBD.

Amy Aines is the Founder of Talking STEM- Building Vital Communication Skills to Launch Successful Career. She is a communications strategist, coach and trainer. She creates workshops and curriculum to teach STEM graduates and early career professionals vital communication methods for effectively championing their ideas and building support for their work. She also teaches essential success skills for the workplace that most scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians didn’t learn in graduate school.

Additional information about the event including registration link and list of professionals will be released closer to the event date.
