Science of Mentorship Podcast artworkWe’re excited to announce the release of The Science of Mentorship, a new podcast from the Board on Higher Education and Workforce of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.

This 10-part series explores how students in STEMM can discover more of their potential when they have responsive and effective mentors, told through the personal stories of top researchers in the United States.

Leaders like physicist Dr. Jim Gates and pathologist and former CWSEM member Dr. Vivian Pinn will share their experiences with mentorship throughout their careers. Whether positive or negative, each story focuses on mentorship skills that can and should be learned so all students’ potential can be unleashed to advance in STEMM.

The first episode, featuring the incoming Chair of the Committee on Women in Science, Engineering, and Medicine, Dr. Gilda Barabino, will be out on January 14.
