The role of diversity and internationalisation in career development for researchers. A conversation with Pedro Resende from Chaperone
May 30, 2024 Season 8 Episode 3
Diversiunity & Cloud Chamber

Not all research institutions have a set of courses or clearly defined career pathways for their researchers. We expect researchers to be born with the necessary skills to project manage, plan their career and support research networks or miraculously achieve them when they get their PhD degree. Pedro Resende co-founded Chaperone, the first personalised online career development platform for scientists. 

We found that concept intriguing and wanted to chat with Pedro about his thoughts on career development and, of course, the role of managing diversity and internationalisation in today’s ideas of skills for researchers. We talked about all of that and how Chaperone addresses this themselves and work with it internally in the company and when developing consultancy and coaching. We also talked about how an increasingly uncertain world affects this and how research managers and administrators can support this. 

This episode is produced and edited by Peter Xiong.
