Being a start-up is dizzying: You need to secure funding, perfect the product, and get to market quickly, with little room to find talent—let alone time to train them and get them “up to speed.” But there’s a rich, untapped pool of talent, with a knack for critical thinking and research, hiding in plain sight.

Our panel of experts in the humanities will share how the skills they learned while completing a humanities PhD—like problem solving, research skills, deep understanding of the human experience, and more—are enabling humanities PhDs to help organizations in any industry achieve their goals.

Panel members include:
• Dalia Oppenheimer, PhD in English – Lead Communications Specialist, Nestle Purina
• Rick Shang – PhD candidate in Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology, Washington University and Founder of Vulpes Corp.
• Brandon N. Towl, PhD in Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology, CEO and Chief Writer at Words Have Impact
• Moderated by Rafia Zafar, PhD, Washington University’s Professor of English, African American and American Culture Studies
