The Root of the Science Podcasts airs Monday biweekly. Hosted by Anne Chisa aka Anne with an E. This show has interviews with guests involved in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) . The purpose of the podcasts is to highlight #AfricansInSTEM across the globe and give them the opportunity to tell their stories in their own voice (literally) about their research or projects. We find out why they are in the STEM field (the ROOT of their science) and have in depth conversations about the individual away from the science. Lastly, by bringing the podcasts into mainstream media, the hope is to inspire others to get into STEM as well as those who are already in the field to persevere and strive for more after hearing about the prospects available from my guests. For the"non-STEM" people this podcast is also for you. You will be afforded the opportunity to broaden your horizon and you will learn something new, guaranteed from each episode! *Disclaimer: The views expressed by the guests in this podcasts do not reflect my own* Follow on Twitter & Instagram : @RootofSciPodFacebook group : The Root of the Science Podcasts

    EP 97: Dedication to Ndoni Mcunu- Climate Scientist, Founder and CEO of BWIS

    EP 97: Dedication to Ndoni Mcunu- Climate Scientist, Founder and CEO of BWIS

    Hello everyone!

    Welcome to Episode 97.

    This week's episode is a very special one as it is a dedication to honor the memory of a dear friend and mentor Ndoni Mcunu who sadly passed away on 16 April 2022. Ndoni played a significant role in helping me start this podcast and supported me and the vision of amplifying Africans in STEM globally. It was only fitting that I honor her in the best manner that I know.

    The episode was released originally exactly 2years ago this month on 1 April 2020. Ndoni Mcunu was a PhD Candidate at Witwatersrand University, at the Global Change Institute in South Africa. Also, she is the Founder & CEO of Black Women in Science (BWIS). A registered non-profit organization that aimed to deliver capacity development interventions that target young black women scientists and researchers. Apart from my own dedication to her in this episode, we chatted about some of her passions: women's development, education, and the importance of science communication.  It was a great honor to have her on the show plus to have her in my life as someone I looked up to and loved.
    You lit life in many people's lives and your legacy WILL live on forever. 
    We will continue what you started. 
    RIP Ndoni.
