The WID community gathers daily at 3 p.m. to take a break, caffeinate and converse. Buzz Tea @ 3 is a monthly series that gathers perspectives on different topics focused on ideas and research. The institute’s Twitter followers can also chime in by replying to @WIDiscovery, posting on its Facebook page or emailing us.
At WID, collaboration and mentorship diversify the lenses through which we view disciplines, ideas and problems. We’re curious to learn what qualities of a mentor are most conducive to broadening one’s perspective. What do you think?
