Social Impact Road Trip: Fall 2019

In each episode of the Inside Our MIND podcast, we take a look at issues and challenges facing education that we are working to address through research, technology, and strategic initiatives.

In our latest episode, Brian welcomes EVP and Executive Director of Social Impact, Karin Wu, back to the show. We start off discussing Karin's recent feature in STEMConnector’s Million Women Mentors: Leaders to Learn From series. Karin has also conducted visits and participated in events across the country with our donors and strategic partners, like John Deere, Phillips 66, Rockwell Automation, the One8 Foundation, and more.

Karin shared her insights, experiences, and takeaways from these visits, including what our partners have in common that makes them such a great match for MIND.
