pd|hub Publishes Report and Hosts Public Release Event

Date Posted: Monday, February 08, 2021

pd|hub is pleased to announce the publication of Enhancing Dissemination of Evidence-Based Models for STEM PhD Career Development; a Stakeholder Workshop Report. This report presents findings from pd|hub's NSF-funded convening of interdisciplinary and cross-sector stakeholders, held at the Janelia Research Campus of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, that explored advancing the career and professional development (CPD) of early career scientists. The urgent and complex challenges faced by our world today have emphasized the importance of expanding the connections between academia, industry, and government, as well as enhancing PhD CPD educational approaches to help PhD scientists be better prepared to contribute in a variety of professional roles to benefit society. The report highlights key issues and proposed actions for addressing systemic barriers, stakeholder-specific perspectives, and pd|hub-affiliated actions moving forward since the workshop.
