In this career talk, Katja Urbatsch will address the unique opportunities and challenges faced by doctoral students that are the first in their families to attend university or pursue a PhD.

Katja Urbatsch is the founder and CEO of non-profit organisation ArbeiterKind (English “working-class child”). She is the author of two books, Als Arbeiterkind an die Uni (English “At uni with a working class background”) and Ausgebremst: Warum das Recht auf Bildung nicht für alle gilt (English “Why the right to education doesn’t apply to everyone”). As the first academic in her family, she is familiar with the problems and challenges faced by children from families who haven’t attended university. Her organisation ArbeiterKind empowers pupils from non-academic families to be the first in their family to attend university.
