Example activities may include, but are not limited to: workshops, retreats, reading groups or guest lectures. Pathway activities may be organised by LISS funded students or Pathway Leads, but should be approved and submitted by Pathway Leads.  You are encouraged to organise at least one career or employability-oriented event each year.
