Philosophers Beyond Academia kickoff event with Patrick Byrne, CEO of Overstock.comHelping philosophers working outside academia stay connected to scholarly communities—and vice versa—is very important to the APA. That's why we're excited to launch our new Philosophers Beyond Academia Network!

To launch this new network of philosophy degree holders working outside the academy, we're pleased to announce a kick-off event at our 2018 Pacific Division Meeting in San Diego: A Conversation with Patrick Byrne, CEO of Overstock.com. Byrne, who earned his PhD in philosophy from Stanford University, will speak about the value of philosophy and humanities in the business world, in conversation with Andrew Cullison, director of the Prindle Institute for Ethics at DePauw University.

We invite you to join us for this event on Saturday, March 31, at 1 p.m. at the US Grant Hotel in San Diego. Preregistration is not required but is strongly recommended, as there will be a $5 fee for those who register at the door. (Those registered for the Pacific Division meeting may attend this session at no additional charge.) Preregister above; those who preregister for the kick-off event will automatically be registered as members of the APA's Philosophers Beyond Academia Network.

If you're not able to attend in person but would like to join the APA's Philosophers Beyond Academia Network and be contacted about future events and resources for philosophers working outside the academy, sign up here.
