Diederich Drop-in is a webinar series created to assist students with their career development. Each session, a different guest speaker is invited to share their professional narrative and highlight why they chose their particular career path. The speakers candidly share past challenges, industry norms and tools for sustainability. Each program ends with an in-depth question and answer period.

Our goal is to prepare students to think strategically about their professional trajectories.
