DescriptionNew graduates interested in entering industry and individual contributors already in industry have little to no transparency into the life of a research manager. The industry professionals on this panel are all managers who oversee other researchers (and some of whom still continue to perform research themselves). Each manager has a very different set of roles and responsibilities and took a different pathway to arrive at where they are today. They will share insights around what management does and does not entail, discuss various ways one may become a manager (as well as the motivations), and break down types of teams managers may lead throughout their careers.
