It is our pleasure to announce our third GROW!EarlyCareer event on “Jumping into (and through) the job market for sustainability scholars” that will take place on December 2nd, 2021 (15:00 – 16:30 CET) as an online event.
You can sign up here:
We will have a great panel of guest speakers who will help us covering a wide variety of job orientations and approaches that hopefully would be of interest to all of our participants. Prof. Jonathan Pinkse from Alliance Manchester Business School at the University of Manchester, will help us with the dynamics of the Business schools in an international context. Prof. Valentina de Marchi, from the Department of Economics and Management at the University of Padova, Italy and president of the GRONEN community will provide an approach to what does working within and outside the university in different roles looks like. And Prof. Nicole Darnall, Foundation Professor of Management and Public Policy, School of Sustainability, College of Global Futures at the Arizona State University would help us understanding the possibilities in public administration, public policy, sustainability schools, environmental science & policy schools, or consulting.
The GROW!EarlyCareer events are an initiative that GRONEN is initiating to enhance community-building opportunities following the developmental spirit of GRONEN. The idea of the events is to offer a platform where early career researchers (primarily PhD and early postdoc/assistant professors) have the opportunity to discuss a range of career-development topics together with 2-3 experienced researchers. The events will start with a semi-structured online panel debate/ interview during which the guests discuss several broader questions related to the specific topic with a host moderating the discussion. After that we will have enough time to actively discuss with all the participants.
There will be more events to come. Stay tuned and follow us on social media to receive all the updates!!
