Dear partners and friends of Global Talent Mentoring,

Welcome to the third edition of The Hub! We hope this newsletter finds you safe and healthy during this time of pandemic. The Global Talent Mentoring team, much like the rest of the world, has been faced with challenges due to COVID-19, but we—together with our partners—are dedicated to overcoming them. Our international collaborations with 33 partners and counting connect us to networks covering five continents. Through our growing network and with the support of our partners, we are finding exceptional mentees and mentors needed to help make Global Talent Mentoring a success. Online talent development in STEM has never come at a better time!

Best wishes,
Prof. Dr. Heidrun Stoeger

Help us find MENTORS for our outstanding mentees!

Thanks to our committed partners, hundreds of amazing students have been nominated to participate in Global Talent Mentoring! As some institutions have required additional time due to local shutdowns, the number of nominees is still increasing. The talent, drive, and diverse STEMM interests of these youths is remarkable. Now, these future mentees need mentors! Global Talent Mentoring and its partners need STEMM experts who are motivated to foster the STEMM talent of our equally motivated mentees. For more information about what our outstanding mentors do and who can become a mentor, please click here.

Help us mold the next generation of innovative STEMM experts by volunteering as a mentor!

Volunteer as a mentor!

In each newsletter, we highlight supporters of Global Talent Mentoring. This month, we are featuring one of the world’s most influential scientists, our African partners, and our Africa coordinator—all of whom see the potential of Global Talent Mentoring to advance talent development in STEMM globally.

Statement of support from Nobel Laureate Prof. Dr. Klaus von Klitzing

Global Talent Mentoring has received a statement of support from Prof. Dr. Klaus von Klitzing, winner of the 1985 Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery of the Quantum Hall Effect. Prof. Dr. von Klitzing currently heads the department of low dimensional electron systems at the prestigious Max Planck Institute based in Stuttgart, Germany. Prof. Dr. von Klitzing shared these words of support with Global Talent Mentoring:

“There are talents all over the world and the language of science does not know borders. Good mentoring is the best way to ask the right questions.”

Prof. Dr. von Klitzing’s conviction about mentoring echoes Global Talent Mentoring’s mission to make high quality talent development available all over the globe.

Our partners in Africa and our Africa coordinator

In this newsletter, we would like to showcase our partners in Africa: Kotebe Metropolitan University (Ethiopia), Kumasi Technical University (Ghana), and Mount Kenya University (Kenya). These three universities have excellent reputations and are passionate supporters of the sciences and science education, each sponsoring numerous research projects and international science collaborations. One of our other African partners, Mully Children’s Family (Kenya), is a nonprofit organization that focuses on community empowerment and rehabilitation for young people. One of the benefits of Global Talent Mentoring is the opportunity to support the STEMM talents of exceptional youths whose personal or socioeconomic situations may not have allowed them to have such an opportunity to develop their special STEMM talents otherwise. Together, these partners have nominated amazing, hardworking young students in STEMM as mentees and continue to select the very best STEMM experts as mentors through their national and international networks.
Dr. David Rempel
Coordinating these fine institutions is Dr. David Rempel of the IUBH University of Applied Sciences (IUBH) (Nürnberg and Munich campuses) in Germany. Originally hailing from Canada, Dr. Rempel has been working with IUBH since 2009. In his role at IUBH, Dr. Rempel is involved in numerous projects and conferences that promote the development of entrepreneurship and talent in Africa through an organization called German-African Entrepreneurship. Through his many contacts in the African continent, Dr. Rempel has been influential in securing partnerships between Global Talent Mentoring and excellent universities and other institutions in Africa. Dr. Rempel closely collaborates with Global Talent Mentoring to continually expand our growing network. For more information on our partners in Africa, please visit our partner directory.
