Diversity in STEM
Corporate Partners Program
Our Diversity in STEM Corporate Partners Program creates and fosters connections between underrepresented students in the life, physical, and mathematical sciences and partner corporations. This program develops strategic relationships in environments conducive to networking and recruitment and allows each company the chance to showcase themselves as industry leaders.

You will discuss the day-to-day with a leading GSK scientist, explore what it's like to transition from academia to industry, examine the differences between academic and industry research, and specific challenges of such transitions.
