MRS & AQR Graduate Roadshows - more details

Further to our short post last week, here are a few more details about this exciting development and how you can get involved.

For a while now Trish & Ken Parker have been running some roadshows at universities to help promote the profile of research as a career. To date they have visited and presented to over 20 universities. However following one of the main findings of our researching a career was to gain more exposure at universities, the programme is to be ramped up with the aim of reaching 100 universities a year.

To do this we need to gain support from people across the industry to get involved to help make this happen. Whether it be in a senior role to help introduce the session and set out some of the key messages that our project has identified through to middle and junior level people that can share their personal experiences.

The aim is not to make participation onerous and we would hope if lots of people commit to do a single event then we can really make a difference - if you can do more, that would be brilliant!

So if you are interested in challenging perceptions, expanding on what is great about our industry, the variety, innovation and impact on strategy then please drop your details to membership@mrs.org.uk and they will contact you to discuss how you can help.
