Red T founder a panelist at the CUNY Graduate Center, New York City
When: April 20, 2017
Where: Graduate Center, City University of New York, 365 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10016, Room C197
Session time: 6:00 – 8:00 pm
Topic: Red T: A dissertation in action
The CUNY Graduate Center is hosting a “Careers in Entrepreneurship” panel that features GC alumni who have built their own non-profit organization, for-profit company, consultancy, or freelance business. The objective is to demonstrate how PhD skills can be transferred successfully to non-academic environments. Within this framework, Red T will introduce current students to its global advocacy work and its various initiatives. Specifically, we will describe how the Red T vision, which was first laid out in our founder’s dissertation, was transformed into a vibrant all-volunteer non-profit organization for the protection of translators and interpreters in high-risk settings.
A special thanks to Dr. Jennifer S. Furlong, Director, Office of Career Planning and Professional Development, for including Red T in this panel.
