Testimonials

Co-founder, Professor of the Practice (Station1) & Instructor (MIT)| Historian of Science & Technology| Entrepreneur

I have engaged with Susan Cohen on report compilation and editing projects on topics related to pedagogy, and diversity, equity and inclusion in science and technology. Sue’s role in these efforts included: synthesis of themes drawn from disparate information, contribution to overall narrative and structure, and editing of text and style formatting. I continue to value her thoughtful reading and engagement with the intellectual content and mission of our shared work. Her role as an informed yet external reviewer and editor allowed for productive reflection and strengthened the overall projects.
