Mentor: Anita Gibson, Deputy Director, MCSP (Maternal and Child Survival Program)

What are mentees looking for? A sense of different paths one can take in international health and strategies to reach both personal and professional goals. 

What 1 piece of advice do you give every mentee you work with? Solid field experience is invaluable. Learning how to work effectively with multiple stakeholders and colleagues with varying world views is not straightforward.  These skills come with experience - particularly field experience. 

Why are you interested in mentoring? Admittedly, I haven't sought out mentoring opportunities; rather, I sort of fell into them, particularly with more junior colleagues with whom I work.  After years of advancing my career while raising a family in the US and overseas, I find that colleagues are quite interested in how to achieve both job satisfaction and work-life balance.  I certainly d…

Be the master of your change, not a victim to it, since change is inevitable.Enjoy your work - you have to want to go to work every day.

Why are you interested in mentoring?

So I can help, not be a hindrance to other people. I like finding how to inspire people. It increases my satisfaction to see others' growth.
