Title: A Chair in 10 Years
Audience: Early-career academics (“future leaders”). Participants must have completed their PhD and be in post. The first instantiation of this Workshop was aimed at women only but this Workshop is open to all.
Purpose: Networking for those at a similar career stage.
This workshop looks at some of the issues for those aiming to develop a career in academia. It is designed for post-doctoral staff and staff in the early years of their careers. The outcome should be a clearer understanding of how promotional procedures operate, and the start of an action plan to achieve longer term career goals.
Ambition to succeed is great; aspiration, dedication and enthusiasm are great. Progress is undoubtedly helped by an agenda, plans, a strategy and objectives. The point of these workshops is to help colleagues move to practical issues that can assist in career management.
