MAGIC 2017 - Mentoring and Guidance in Careers Workshop

Professors Mahananda Dasgupta (ANU) and Nalini Joshi (The University of Sydney)
are presenting the inaugural MAGIC 2017 - Mentoring and Guidance in Careers Workshop, a project that seeks to support women and gender diverse identities in Mathematics and Physics. The project particularly targets early career researchers (within 0-7 years of PhD completion).

All the information can be found at the MAGIC 2017 website which states:

"The inaugural MAGIC Workshop will present an opportunity to explore the many facets of forging a career in academic, government or industry settings, and to discuss how to create building blocks for success and resilience in careers."

The number of places is limited upon application and those seeking to be a part of the event should head over to the website to find out more.

Do you qualify? Are you interested? We would love to know if you are!
