Sponsored by the MIT Office of the Dean of Graduate Education, BIG and the WHOI Student Organization have teamed up for a new seminar series for graduate students at MIT and WHOI to learn about professional and personal topics in one lecture.

With this, we hope that students come to appreciate a diversity of life paths and feel empowered to forge their own. It will also provide a chance to foster new connections in a relaxed setting while emphasizing our common ground in earth sciences and oceanography. This will include a short talk on the presenter’s science background and topic of presenter’s choice, followed by informal Q&A.
