Beyond Academia is a non-profit organization run by UC Berkeley graduate students and postdocs with the goal of empowering graduate students and postdocs to expand their career options beyond the traditional academic track.
The organization’s flagship conference is a two day event with around 100 Ph.D. speakers who successfully transitioned to non-academic careers in a variety of fields in both STEM and Humanities and Social Sciences. This year’s conference is taking place on February 25–26
The conference is FREE and open to all graduate students and postdocs from any institution, and will include keynote lectures by Dr. Karen Kelsky and Dr. Jennifer R. Cohen, along with panels and professional development workshops aimed at educating and preparing you to transition to careers outside of academia.
