Monthly coffee/tea event – is a one-hour event being hosted online by FinGeo. It brings together early career researchers and PhD students, across finance, geography, and the wider academic community. This is a unique opportunity for all attendees at different stages of their careers to engage with one another in an online supportive event, have an opportunity to ask career-related questions, and get answers in a friendly environment. The event will not be recorded, although a summary based on Q&A will be written and posted on FinGeo Blog page. This is a great way to familiarize ourselves with different career paths we might take.
Our first guest speaker is Karen Lai and the event takes place on 25th November 2021 from 13:00 – 14:00 GMT, access here.
