The MEG Subcommittee workshop will focus on early career development within the museum industry. The day will start with some introductions and a few talks from members of Kew staff regarding different career paths, followed by a tour of the Economic Botany Collection. After lunch, there will be more talks from external speakers, with a discussion and Q&A session to end. There will be opportunity for people to wander around Kew Gardens at the end of the day, before we head to one of Kew’s local pub to connect over a drink!
This workshop is intended to anyone who is in the first few years of their career in the museum sector or would like to join the sector in the future.
