This podcast is a resource for those with a STEM background seeking to understand the vast career opportunities outside of the laboratory, how to prepare these roles, and tips on being successful after making the transition.
SC104: Double History Moment: 3rd Year Podcast Anniversary and MS Flag Vote
June 27, 2020 is a doubly historic day for me. Today is the 3rd year anniversary of STEMulating Conversations. It is also the day that the Mississippi State legislature--in the House and Senate--voted to remove the current State flag that has flown since 1894.
The significance of this day and vote was definitely an occasion to connect with fellow PhD chemist and Mississipian, Dr. John Harkless, to have a awesome #STEMulatingconvo.
SC103: Understanding the Context to Digest the Content
When you understand the context, the content is easier to digest. This is the guiding principle that will be used when we engage in STEMulating Conversations on the topics of diversity and inclusion, particularly as it relates to Black Americans in society and the sciences.
SC102: Time is Money
If you were to spend your time the same way you spend your money, what would your time bank account look like? Given that there will never be more than 24 hours in a day, managing the activities within that time may seem more like an art than a skill. Time management is a misnomer because you are managing activities rather than time.
SC101: What Will YOU Do Differently in the New Year?
Happy New Year! It's the beginning of 2020, and many of us have set ambitious new goals--new year, new chapters, new journeys, new experiences. What will you do differently in order to attain the results that you desire?
SC100: Dr. Calvin Mackie, the Educator, Entrepreneur and Founder of STEM-NOLA
Hurricane Katrina was devastating on several levels, but it was the event that freed Dr. Calvin Mackie and enabled him to walk in his purpose. A lifelong resident of New Orleans, Dr. Mackie has a passion educating others on the boundless opportunities in STEM. He created STEM-NOLA to expose, inspire and engage members in New Orleans and surrounding communities about the opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
Now celebrating its sixth year, STEM-NOLA is sustainable STEM education model that is being replicated across the country.
Dr. Mackie received a BS in Mathematics from Morehouse College and a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Georgia Tech. He went on to earn a Masters and PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Georgia Tech.
SC99: Reflecting on the Past to Set Future Goals
The process of reflecting on successes and lessons learned that have occurred throughout the year enable us to set more realistic goals for the upcoming year. What worked well? What didn't go as planned? What can you do differently to achieve a better outcome? As 2019 comes to a close, what have you learned will shape your 2020 goals?
