We have only begun to understand the initial impacts of the pandemic on academic careers. The nature of pandemic disruption is still evolving and is likely to continue well into the future. Nonetheless, academic life is often focused on long-term planning and multi-year goals for progress and advancement. In our last workshop in this series, we take a moment to step back and consider the next steps in these uncertain times. Our panel includes esteemed RTWG alumni, who will reflect on their pre-pandemic plans and their future goals in this context. In convening this panel, we recognize there is no single path forward and we seek to generate strategies that allow us to work collectively as we move forward.
