Current and former Judges of the SSTFI - we are requesting example resumes or career success stories that we can utilize as part of a new campaign to help students and young researchers see how very diverse journeys can lead to successful careers. If you have a resume or story to share please contact or send to: Andrea Spencer aspence@iastate.edu

There will also be a question on the Judge's Registration form asking if you would be willing to share and have us contact you.
