Description:Professional Development Committee Lunch & Learn: A GCC Community Conversation on the pd|hub Initiative

As a major stakeholder in the future direction of professional development for doctoral and postdoctoral trainees, you are invited to join the GCC’s Professional Development Committee for an overview and follow-up conversation on Professional Development Hub’s (pd|hub) recently published report, Enhancing Dissemination of Evidence-Based Models for STEM PhD career development following the pd|hub’s Report Public Release Event.

The report presents findings from pd|hub’s NSF-funded convening of interdisciplinary and cross-sector stakeholders at the Janelia Research Campus of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. The goal of the workshop was to understand the diverse needs and contributions of stakeholders in graduate and postdoctoral education and to stimulate local and national actions that will advance the career and professional development of early-career scientists. The report highlights key issues and proposed actions, stakeholder-specific perspectives, and pd|hub-affiliated activities moving forward since the workshop. Access the report here.
