Young Generation Forum (YG)

The Young Generation Forum (YGF) at the US-Korea Conference (UKC) is a forum under the Career and Leadership Track called the “Young Generation and Professional Forums (YG/PF).”  This program will span 3 days during UKC from Thursday through Saturday.

The Young Generation Forum at UKC aims to provide career development and leadership training to next-generation students and early career professionals, who generally have less than 5 years of work experience. As they progress through the earliest stages of their academic/industry careers, students and early-career professionals are faced with important decisions to make and soft skills to develop.

  • Should I go into academia or industry?
  • Is it okay to pursue a career in a field completely outside of my area of study?
  • How should I pay off for my loans?
  • How does personal finance work?

The Young Generation Forum at UKC will include various workshops and speakers to facilitate the next-generation scientists and engineers transition from school to advanced degrees or careers by equipping them with insight and mentorships from experienced leaders.

The Young Generation Forum at UKC primarily focuses on undergraduate students, graduate students, professional students (medical, dental, pharmacy, etc.), recent graduates, and early career professionals. Participants to the YGF at UKC will share their leadership and/or career experiences through a poster presentation only.

The separate YG/PF application and support information is found under the CFP / APPLY menu.
