The program was put together with help from your peers (thank you Nicolas Aguila, Surbhi Kesar and Peter Bent!). It features both senior scholars as well as fellow early career researchers. The format of the event is conversational and we encourage your active participation.

To open the event we will introduce the “Early Career Challenges Report”, which highlights personal experiences of YSI alumni in navigating the challenges of their early career.

We hope you’ll join us to share your experiences, build resources and enjoy the support of your mentors and peers.
