Emerging Leaders Lecture Series Announced

The Woodruff School is excited to announce the inaugural Emerging Leaders Lecture Series. This lecture series will bring talented underrepresented minority senior Ph.D. students, postdocs, recent graduates, and early career professionals that are interested in pursuing academic careers to our campus to showcase their research and engage with our faculty, students, and staff. 

"The Emerging Leaders Lecture Series is an outstanding opportunity for us to bring some of the brightest young minds in their fields to our campus to explore the opportunities Georgia Tech has to offer while also serving as inspiration for our current students," said Samuel Graham Jr., Eugene C. Gwaltney, Jr. Chair. "As these emerging leaders finish their degree programs, postdocs and early career endeavors, we want the Woodruff School to be at the top of the list of places they would consider launching their professional careers."
