The Gates Scholars' Alumni Associations' first webinar of 2011 on career choice
Gates alumni debated how to find an ethical career that makes a difference at the first in a series of webinars.
The alumni – Andrew S. Robertson , Chief Policy Officer at BIO Ventures for Global Health, Arne Morteani , a Principal at Environmental Technologies Fund, social entrepreneur and author Robyn Scott  and physician and clinician-scientist Anand D Jeyasekharan  – spoke about their different career pathways and business models and suggested how obstacles can be overcome.
Some of the overriding themes that emerged from their experiences were the impact the Cambridge-Gates experience had on their career decisions and how it provided opportunities that they would not otherwise have had. They also spoke about the importance of diversifying social contacts who could help with career choices.
A recording of the discussion is available. The webinars for both alumni and scholars are designed to find out what alumni are doing and engage in stimulating discourses on topics as varied as Professional Development, Energy, Environment, Health, World News and Politics.
