The Management Science and Engineering Department (MS&E) at Stanford University is launching its first annual Rising Stars Workshop to run May 2nd, 2023. The workshop focuses on celebrating and fast-tracking the careers of exceptional young scholars (across the interdisciplinary fields represented by MS&E) at a critical inflection point in their career. The workshop will showcase the exciting, innovative research by this group of rising scholars and provide PhD students and postdocs the opportunity to plug into these networks, platforms, and opportunities.
The workshop also aims to increase representation and diversity in the fields represented by Management Science & Engineering by providing a platform and a supportive mentoring network to navigate academic careers involving interdisciplinary work. The workshop will include opportunities to connect with a cohort of peers across academic disciplines, and engage with mentors. We are looking to highlight students that are within a year or two of completing their PhDs with the opportunity to share research and get feedback and mentorship from Stanford faculty. We aim to make this event as diverse as possible, so we especially encourage suggestions of women, historically under-represented, and first-gen, low-income (FLI) applicants.
