Choose Your Own Adventure: Developing A Values-Oriented Framework for Your Career

Speaker
Lucianne Walkowicz

Host
Alejandro Cárdenas Avendaño

Abstract
We’ve all heard how academia evaluates our work: papers, papers, and… more papers. While academic publishing is an essential part of disseminating research results, it is only one activity amongst many that make up a career (or for that matter, a life). In this talk, I offer some practical advice for thinking about one’s work within the larger frame of your personal values and goals. While I will draw examples from my own career, I hope to offer listeners guidance in articulating what is important to them, aligning their career choices with those values, and establishing metrics that go beyond the h-index.
