Philosophy@Work: Entrepreneurship and Data Analysis in Educational Consulting and Applied Ethics

February 17, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm  |  Stevenson Fireside Lounge


Philosophy@Work: Entrepreneurship and Data Analysis in Educational Consulting and Applied Ethics 
Are you interested in learning more about how graduate training in the humanities can lead to successful and intellectually stimulating careers in consulting? Consulting is an expansive and evolving field, one that many values-driven PhDs are currently shaping by challenging organizational tenets based on profit-motive. PhD alumni in Philosophy Ben Roome and Jake Metcalf discuss how their doctorates prepared them to become independent and influential consultant-scholars in the fields of data analysis and management, (educational) technology, and applied ethics. They’ll also address the ways in which their experiences as UCSC PhDs continue to influence the type of work they accept, seek out, and perform, and how such decisions influence their career trajectories in general. Jacob (Jake) Metcalf is a consultant and independent scholar specializing in data and technology ethics. Ben Roome is an entrepreneur, an ed tech and data ethics consultant, a researcher and data analyst.


Lunch will be served, as always.
