Dear all,

Our colleagues at Connecting science and beyond have produced a podcast 
series on the topic of mentoring, please read the email below and check 
out the episodes, a few of which feature Latin American scientists and 
those working in bioinformatics capacity building spaces.

Best wishes and stay safe,


Dear All,

We launched a new podcast series yesterday, called Your Digital Mentor 
Podcast, and we are hopeful it will be a useful resource for early- and 
middle- career scientists. We will address topics ranging from 
establishing and maintaining a mentoring relationship, to Imposter 
Syndrome, Burnout Syndrome, the power of networking, equality and 
diversity in science(and why representation matters), among many others!

So please tune in! Our first 3 episodes are already available and you 
can find them here 
<https://your-digital-mentor.simplecast.com/episodes>. I particularly 
found the third episode 
quite useful, because I always perceived mentoring sessions as being 
more of an informal conversation, without much structure, but Dr. Monica 
Gandhi, from UCSF,  who has experience running multiple mentoring the 
mentor workshops, explains why it’s beneficial to have structured 
agendas and follow-ups, so she gives great tips for both mentors and 
mentees to make the most of their time. Joining her is Dr. Vidya Mave, 
the leader and director of John Hopkins University -India Clinical 
research programme, who has a very impressive CV, and is a mentee of Dr. 

In the first episode 
we hear from the extremely experienced Dr. Grace Mwaura, the coordinator 
of the African Academy of Sciences (AAS) mentorship scheme, and Dr. 
Andres Lescano, from the Cayetano University of Peru, who has trained 
hundreds of epidemiologist and had published on the importance of 
strengthening mentoring in low- and middle- income countries in order to 
advance global health research.

Last but not least, in the second episode 
we have Dr. Amel Ghouila, who coordinates a health data science 
programme in Africa, India and Brazil for the Bill and Melinda Gates 
Foundation, and also worked in Bioinformatics capacity building in 
Africa with H3ABioNet for over 5 years, and Dr. Palwende Boua, from 
Burkina Faso’s Clinical Research Unit of Nanoro, and has taken part of 
the AAS mentorship scheme.

I hope some of you will enjoy listening to Your Digital Mentor!

Kind regards,

Isabela Malta,
