Events and seminars

The NextGen Association, in collaboration with the Office of Academic Affairs, plans and coordinates a series of career and professional development events.

  • Annual Trainee Retreat: All day, off-site retreat for the trainee community, featuring trainee talks, exciting plenary speakers, and career development workshops. Save the date for the 2021 Retreat: September 30, 2021!
  • Facing Forward Series: "Facing Forward" is a series of informal lunches with Broad faculty and senior staff, focusing on challenges they’ve faced and how they’ve overcome them. 
  • Mock Interview Series: The Mock Interview series aims to prepare trainees for non-academic careers. The series includes seminars and workshops on topics relevant to researching non-academic career paths and allows trainees to have a mock job interview conducted by a Broad alumni for a role within one of those pathways.
  • Social Events: NextGen, with OAA, plans fun activities to bring the trainee community together. Subscribe to the NextGen Association calendar to see what is planned.
