EEB’s GREBE (Graduate Researchers in Ecology, Behavior, and Evolution) collaborated with FOSEP (Forum on Science Ethics & Policy) to host the Beyond Academia: Environmental Edition forum on April 8.
The event consisted of Q&A sessions with panelists and networking sessions. There were a variety of panelists from government agencies, NGOs, the CDC, ORNL, science policy organizations, science communicators, the Knoxville Zoo, and more. The purpose of the event was to learn about careers for individuals with graduate degrees in environmental and related sciences beyond the traditional academic route.
There are several pictures of the forum available on the EEB Facebook page.
