Next Steps for Career Diversity: Diving into Graduate Education

In the December 2017 issue of Perspectives, the American Historical Association’s news magazine, Executive Director James Grossman discussed next steps for the AHA’s Career Diversity Initiative.

An overarching goal for the AHA’s Career Diversity for Historians Initiative is addressing discrepancies between what is taught in history doctoral programs and the work that history PhDs actually do. Developing skills in communication, collaboration, quantitative literacy, intellectual self-confidence, and digital literacy can have great utility for both new professors and non-traditional careers.
