I would have enjoyed more time for Q&A as there were questions I had for the whole panel. It felt more of an information session than exploring finance careers and gaining knowledge. Overall, it was okay.
It was a lively conversation on very important topics. The honesty and levity from most of the panelists was very refreshing and had me hanging on their very open vulnerable words. There is a tendency within human nature to self aggrandize and tell a crowd what one thinks the crowd wants to hear. The sort of honest discussions that took place at this event I believe is needed more at our academic institutions.
