We are delighted to share information about a Career Diversity Virtual Roundtable taking place on Thursday, August 27 at 4 pm via Zoom. This Roundtable is organized by the 2020-2025 Humanities Without Walls (HWW) Mellon Grant, which will offer Career Diversity Workshops in Summer 2021, 2022, and 2023. HWW is a nationally recognized player in the national career diversity sphere in higher education today. The Summer Workshop is an excellent opportunity for humanities doctoral students to cultivate skills for navigating the changing terrain of employment for Ph.D.s in the public and private sectors, including higher education.
