Come to this event to build relationships with STEM professionals and students! There will be some recruiters at the event, but the purpose of the event is to help build bridges between all levels of employees.

On October 5, Georgia Tech students and members of the Atlanta metro area community will be invited to the keystone Unscripted fireside chat event. The panel discussion will connect the innovators, business owners, and investors in Biotech with undergraduate students, young professionals, and the general public. The panel will be a fireside-chat style discussion about what it takes to succeed in the industry, the breadth of careers in Biotech, and the future of the field. Following the panel event, all participants are invited to a catered networking reception.

This chat of Biotech and Business experts features Dr. Ted Love and Dr. Tia Lyles-Williams, and will be moderated by Georgia Tech Dean of Engineering Dr. Raheem Beyah. The experts will speak to students about their challenges and triumphs, as well as how students can get involved in Biotech or start their own businesses. The discussion will explore the Experts’ careers and passions, showing students that the humans behind the greatest scientific achievements in our lifetime are also people with success, failure, relationships, and community.

This event is free and open to the public!
