Career & Diversity @ ICCAD
Laleh Behjat - Univ. of Calgary
This session will focus primarily on two closely related issues, career development and diversity at work. Recruiters from industry will share their views and opinions on what companies are looking for from young graduates, and there will also be sharings from young graduates from industry on their works, experiences, and tips in locating a suitable career for PhD students who are going to graduate soon. While career planning and development is important for individuals, diversity at work is an essential ingredient for a healthy organization and company. Studies have shown that diverse companies have a significantly higher chance of success with more financial returns above their respective industry medians. This session will also seek to increase understanding of the importance of diversity and inclusion at works.
