The Student Success Centre invites graduate students and postdoctoral scholars at The University of Western Ontario to After the Defense, Put It Into Practice, a professional development summit to assist in the transition from academia to industry. The event is scheduled for 3:45-7 p.m. Thursday in the Great Hall, Somerville House. 

In the keynote address, From PhD to President, Bonnie Schmidt, Let’s Talk Science president and founder, shares career strategies and recalls her own transition. Participants can also attend concurrent workshops on one of the following: making the transition from academia to industry; turning your research into dollars; or communicating your research without confusing your audience.

A networking forum will follow.
