Two separate but related topics this week. First, Mylène hopes a story from her own past will help you have a better future as we talk about the down and dirty truth about negotiating salaries. Then, we’re really happy to welcome our colleague Helen Pho into the studio. Helen is an adviser on the graduate student and postdocs team and has specifically been heading up programming and initiatives aimed at first-generation graduate students. Find out about some of the work she’s already been doing and what’s being planned – there’s a lot to get excited about. Enjoy!
