S2E01 – ‘Not the Science Type’
with Jayshree Seth, Chief Science Advocate, 3M
40% said that their lives would be no different… WITHOUT SCIENCE‼️
(Survey by 3M)
It is easy to dismiss skeptics. It is immeasurably harder to have empathy for them, their fears and concerns. It is even harder to make the invisibility of science visible and tangible for people, and HUMANIZE science so that people can relate to it, and see how science enables every minute of their day.
If science was out in the world looking for an advocate, for someone to tell her side of the story, I have no doubt it would be Jayshree‼️
In this episode we dive into a mega dose of inspiration with Jayshree Seth, Corporate Scientist and Chief Science Advocate at 3M. She holds 79 patents, is an author, tedx speaker, poet, music producer, and is on a mission to humanize science.
