This working group is dedicated to providing information and workshops for Consortium scholars interested in employment that utilizes graduate training in history of science, technology and medicine fields in and beyond the academy. The group is also open to more senior scholars, particularly those who wish to enhance their mentoring skills. The working group builds on initiatives already being developed by the Society for the History of Technology Career Diversity Working Group.
