Mentor Program for Women in Science

The National Laboratory Animal Center implemented the "Mentor Program for Women in Science (WiSE Program)" and invited academic and research mentors to share their life and professional experiences with young women researchers. With the core spirit of "Inheritance", the mentors worked with participants to think about and solve potential problems encountered in their careers and assisted them stay motivated to keep moving forward. In 2018, a total of 19 mentor-mentee interaction activities were organized with 437 participants. Twelve workshops and 7 online courses were conducted with 1,182 visitors altogether. The Program Office also provided a wide variety of information and event notices to increase the opportunities for women scientists to interact and communicate.
