Role Model Training: Destigmatizing Failure through Storytelling

Thursday, April 29, 2021 - 16:00 to 17:30

All volunteers who work with youth are invited to attend this role model training session.

Failure is an important part of the the science and engineering process.

While youth (especially girls) fear failure, STEM professionals have and continue to fail many times in their careers. In this workshop, you will learn storytelling skills to help you artfully communicate your experiences with failing – and the lessons learned – to younger audiences.

We are excited to partner with Nathan Young of Greater Good Storytelling for this hour long workshop. The last half hour of the workshop will offer an opportunity to connect with local role model programs and network with other mentors.

This event is hosted by the San Diego STEM Ecosystem, Women in STEM working group as part of the Role Model Initiative.
