YBDIC Branches


Our goal is to expose and prepare URM students to careers in both academic and non-academic sectors. We expose students to different career paths by holding professional panels with former BBS Alumni, faculty members, and professionals in wide ranging areas that also center the human side of being in STEM. We will also hold career development workshops in collaboration with the Yale Office of Career Strategy (OCS). Our long-term goal is to create an active mentoring program with non-URM and URM faculty mentors to guide our students through their training at Yale.
