How have anthropologists forged careers in government and non-governmental organizations? How have they used their academic training in anthropology to pursue projects such as community-based conservation and sustainable development, the protection and management of national forests and grasslands, and the conversion of a military post to public use?

Come and hear a panel of Stanford alumni with advanced degrees in anthropology discuss their work in public sector organizations.
