Peer Mentoring: Career GPS

“We met every other week for 2 years. We discussed imposter syndrome and unearthed myriad ways it was negatively affecting our work. We identified ways to improve our scientific productivity and implemented strategies for effective goal setting. We learned how to navigate job interviews, negotiations, and the two-body problem of having a spouse in academia. We drafted plans for how to approach professional bias, discriminatory or condescending comments from colleagues, and maternity leave issues. There was no end to the professional topics we covered and the strategies we cultivated and implemented.”
