Alumni Panels

The Career & Internship Center and the University of Washington Alumni Association are proud to partner on a series of alumni panels during the 2021-2022 academic year.

Each quarter will engage UW alumni to speak to the following broad themes:

  • Careers With Impact
  • Identity in the Workplace
  • Innovation in Action

During Fall 2021, we’re excited to offer the following sessions, where you’ll be able to hear tips, experiences, insights and recommendations from 2-4 UW alumni. Each panel discussion will start as a moderated panel and then move into an open Q&A with the audience, so come ready with questions! These events will likely not be recorded and are only available live, so we look forward to ‘seeing’ you there.
