Episode notes

In this episode, Sandra and Alli are joined by Dr. Nadine Gogolla, group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Neurobiology. 
They talk about family and research and how to successfully combine the two while staying true to yourself. They discuss what being a good ally means and include some tips that are applicable to the scientific work environment. They talk about sensitivity training and why equal opportunity and diversity are still far from being “no-brainers”. 
Having lived both in the US and in Germany, Nadine shares her experiences of being a family with two moms and a woman in science in these countries.
