STEM PhDs can positively impact society by working in think tanks, non-academic research organizations that influence public policy around an important issue or cluster of issues. Think tanks hire PhDs to conduct and evaluate studies and help develop policy recommendations. Versatile PhD Career Panel discussions take place in online discussion forums, so it all happens online and in writing. Each discussion takes a five-day work week; because it is asynchronous, you can participate anytime during the week.
