Zoom | February 1, 8, and 15 | 12 pm Eastern | 3 Sessions Scripture undeniably calls us to pursue justice in the world, and human rights provides a systemic, overarching framework for justice—one that aspires to protect the dignity and liberty of all people, everywhere. Christianity has made an indelible imprint on human rights, through unique theological and historic contributions. Yet we see the concept too often misunderstood, neglected, or misused across the country and within some religious communities. How can people of faith and goodwill reclaim a vision of inherent, universal human rights as a mode and measure of justice? This series will explore three Protestant theologians’ work on human rights in relation to pressing problems of injustice: systemic racism, rising nationalism, and enduring patriarchy. We’ll consider the legacy of exemplary faith leaders who have championed human rights. Join us and gain new insights to inform your own work for justice in the world. - Session One: “Human Rights in Light of Divine Love” - Session Two: “Human Rights in Light of Sacred Human Worth” - Session Three: “Human Rights in Light of Christ’s Solidarity with Humankind” The three sessions will occur on February 1, 8, and 15. false

      This event is the 57th in a series of events covering different professions and career issues. There have been 47 Yale Career Panels, 9 Yale Career Fireside Chats and 1 Yale Career Conversations events. Organized 11 years ago by a group of Yale alumni volunteers, these panels strive to provide candid, unvarnished views of featured professions. These panelists will be able to share their perspectives about the current state and future of these two important sectors, how they are segmented, the career opportunities that are available, and what you should know and consider if you are pursuing a career in these sectors. 

      Although artificial intelligence and data services have been important and attractive professions for a long time and have impacted many industries, both have received a great deal of attention recently as major advances in both fields have powered tremendous business opportunities. The recent release of ChatGBT by OpenAI is just one example of rapid advances in the field.

      Topics:

      • What are the major segments of AI and Data Services from a career perspective?

      • How are those segments different from each other and the different careers in each?

      • Where are these professions heading (good and bad) and will it vary by sector?

      • How do you get into these professions and what is the typical career path?

      • What are the myths versus the realities?

      • What are the characteristics of people who tend to do well and are happy in these professions?

      • What types of people tend not to do well or end up unhappy and why?

      • If you don’t stay in these professions until retirement, what are the exit routes to other professions?

      The panel discussion will be broadcast via an interactive streaming video platform that will allow Yale students and alumni to ask questions of the panel and interact with each other. There will be a 45 minute networking period after the one hour panel where all of the attendees can see each other and mingle. 

      The organizers of these Yale Career Panels are Justin Kosslyn ’09, Julie Sohn ’14, Trish Takemoto ’76, and Peter Young ’74. This panel was organized by Peter Young ’74.

      This series is jointly supported by various organizations at Yale University and Yale Alumni organizations, including the Yale Office of Career Strategy, the Yale Alumni Association (YAA), the Yale School of Management, Students and Alumni of Yale (STAY), the Junior Class Council (JCC), the Yale.nyc (the Yale alumni association in New York City), and the Association of Asian American Yale Alumni (AAAYA).

In spite of a rising global trend towards autocracy, some counties have reversed this trajectory and seen a renewal of democracy.

Her latest book, Paradise at War: A Political History of Kashmir, was highly praised, with the Telegraph India calling it “the one book to read on Kashmir,” and the Financial Times naming it the first of five books to read on the subject. Dr Kumar has also published articles in numerous journals and is a frequent contributor to op-eds in the Hindu and the Indian Express.

      Although the materials she works with have changed over the years, Dorian Webb ’91 maintains that her desire to build community through her work has not. As an architecture student at Yale, Dorian dreamed of creating spaces that complemented their environment and of welcoming architecture that embraced its inhabitants. Now she creates jewelry that encourages conversation, furthers cultural understanding, and makes women feel seen. In this show, she will discuss her career path, which began with the company she launched in her junior year, included selling to most major department stores, and involved time living in Italy, as well as the development of a home décor collection. She also will discuss closing that business, moving to the West coast, teaching low-income women entrepreneurial skills, relaunching her business, and finding her new focus: crafting intentional jewelry that fosters connection.
