Hello! I will be hosting the October 2007 Scientiae Carnival which will be posted over at my place @ Wayfarer Scientista around October 1st or 2nd.
Theme: Mentoring/ Supervising/ Advising - the good, the bad, the inspiring, and the morale draining.
Details about relationships you've had on either side of the boss/employee, advisor/student relationship. What kind of people inspired you and kept you going? What were the qualities that you admire in such people? What kind of people made you want to throw the towel in, made you feel incompetent and feel like you would never make it in the field? What kind of qualities were these? And most of all, how do we as a community of women scientists, be good mentors for the others? Any memories of someone who just inspired you? What are our responsibilities as mentors? As good supervisors? As employees? Do tell!
Please submit your posts (or posts by others that you think qualify) by the usual methods, and try to get them in by 8 am Alaskan Standard Time (that's 12 pm Eastern Standard Time) on September 31st.
