WiSTEM Growing Up in science Series

Facilitated and organized by the Professional Development Committee, WiSTEM is featuring women scientists within Washu community to share their stories.

Have you ever wondered what your advisor struggled with as a graduate student? What they struggle with now? Growing up in science is a conversation series featuring personal narratives of becoming and being a scientist … At a typical Growing up in Science event, one faculty member shares their life story, with a focus on struggles, failures, doubts, detours, and weaknesses. Common topics include dealing with expectations, impostor syndrome, procrastination, luck, rejection, conflicts with advisors, and work- life balance, but these topics are always embedded in the speaker’s broader narrative. – from NYU Growing up in science website Background section
