Today's STEM workforce offers a plethora of options for graduates to consider upon PhD completion. Interestingly, the declining availability of faculty positions combined with the expansion of job opportunities resulted in a waning interest in academic careers. However, PhD graduates from underrepresented groups are disproportionately choosing to pursue careers outside of academia, and the underlying reasons for these disparate patterns are not well understood. In this workshop, we discuss some of the literature and potential best practices that address these dynamics. Lunch will be provided.
