Dr. McNutt speaks on "Building a Career in Science: What I Know Now That I Wish I Had Known Then" in which she relays her own career path beginning nearly 40 years ago when she entered graduate school to become a scientist. After many forks in the road she eventually found herself as Director of the US Geological Survey. There are a number of important observations and lessons that she picked up along the way that are not the subject of course curricula that might prove helpful to others charting their own career path. For example, many young women have been dismayed by the recent article by Anne-Marie Slaughter, former high-ranking State Dept. official, entitled "You Can't Have It All." Dr. McNutt believes that they can have it all, just not all at the same time. However, she also assures young scientists embarking on their careers they they will have nothing if they do not have their integrity; it takes a lifetime to build and a moment to destroy.
