Are you considering a career change? Wondering if you are employable and/or what you might be giving up?

In this workshop we will explore our understanding of the pros and cons of staying in academic research, whether and how we can move to another sector (or combine aspects of academia with another role) and what we feel we might be risking in making this move.

In small groups, we will then
* become familiar with an evidence-informed framework for assessing a potential career move,
* think about how to use this in our current roles,
* develop some practical strategies to assist decision-making.
