In collaboration with the organizers of the Global Women’s Breakfast (#GWB2021) we recorded a series of short interviews. Here, the panelists talk about the leaky pipeline in STEM and how mentors can better support, advocate and encourage women and underrepresented minorities to remain in the sciences. Our panelists include:
• Dr. Laura McConnell (@LauraLeeMc), Bayer Crop Science
• Dr. Lori Ferrins (@LoriFerrins), Northeastern University, Chair IYCN
• Ms. Clarice Phelps (@ClaricePhelps39), Oak Ridge National Lab
• Ms. Bianca Davids, University of the Witwatersrand
• Dr. Marian Nkansah, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology

• Dr. Fun Man Fung (@ChemFunMan), National University of Singapore
• Dr. Supawan Tantayanon, Chulalongkorn University
#GWB2021 took place on February 9, 2021 (iupac.org/gwb), and was themed around “Empowering Diversity in Science”. The discussions that took place were centered on the topic of gender bias and how men and women can collaborate to close the gender gap in science.
