Early-career researchers can shape the future of academia
This piece gives me renewed hopes about the future of academia - it's so wonderful to learn that early-career researchers are increasingly getting into decision-making roles. The article explains how doctoral students and postdocs are joining advisory boards, oversight councils and conference-organizing committees. The article emphasizes how important it is for junior researchers to join leadership positions soon -they will bring to the table fresh perspectives and help bring about the changes they want to see in academia. Have you ever tried to get into decision-making roles? If yes, what was the route you took?
