“This (workshop) was a lot more useful than I thought it would be. The key thing is I changed my mind about who to invite to be my mentor, and it gave me a set of tools to plan for the first session and structure my thoughts.” Mentee
"I went to the workshop after my first meeting, which was perhaps bad timing but it was still very useful. However my mentor had been to one before our first meeting, and she was so well prepared! We used the materials a lot – it’s nice to fall back on a defined process. I think we need that, as scientists. The workshop reaffirmed a lot of things that I was thinking about.” Mentee
