7. Carolyn R. Bertozzi, Editor-in-Chief Department of Chemistry, Stanford University  Aspiring PIs: Give an academic position a go - even without a tenure it’s an excellent starter-job  PI’s: give your students freedom to be the drivers of science, not just a “pair of hands”  Promotion committees: there are many ways for a person to build reputation, allow of differences in professional paths!  Institutions: Loosen up your policies, as healthier & happier employees make huge difference

8.  Adopt the mantra “Proceed and be bold”  Don’t leave before you leave  Don’t be afraid to ask  Make your partner a real partner http://leanin.org/

9.  Unconscious bias  Lack of support systems (professional, peers, family)  Lack of professional role models  Differences in values  Lack of mentoring, including reverse mentoring  Outdated work environment & performance evaluation models  Primary caregiver penalty Some barriers to greater gender diversity

10. And now to talk about solutions…  What makes a career in science rewarding? Have you taken an inventory of why you love what you do?  Have you considered playing into your strengths rather than dwelling on weaknesses?  Do you think about work/life balance? Or do you view it more as a work/life fusion?  How about unconscious bias? Do you know your biases?  Do you feel you have resources you need to succeed? What is missing?  What is something you would recommend? Any favorite tips & tricks?
