Ph.D. Career Diversity Symposium

Navigating diverse careers: A symposium for graduate students

The Graduate Career Diversity Symposium was established in 2022 as a part of IU’s participation in the Ph.D. Career Pathways project (2019–22) organized by the American Association of Universities. Coordinated with seven other institutions, this initiative studied ways to make diverse career pathways visible, valued, and viable for all Ph.D. students and postdocs. This annual event is an opportunity to build communities of practice, foster curriculum development responsive to students from diverse backgrounds, and provide graduate students and postdocs with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to succeed in a range of careers.
