Are you interested in learning more about how to plan for various academic roles and career pathways inside and outside academia? Our next SAGE meeting will be attended by four Indigenous academics who will discuss their roles and experiences in their current positions.

The intent of our session is to mutually explore the helpful and hindering aspects of academic career planning. Please come prepared to engage in dialogue and ask lots of questions. Lunch provided.
