Over the years our Principal has been collecting and distributing information about Leadership, Mentoring and other career advice. Frankie Wood-Black has been a speaker on the American Chemical Society speaker tour. She routinely conducts workshops on communication strategies and innovation for the American Chemical Society Leadership Development Program.

Dr. Wood-Black is concerned that young science and engineering professionals get the timely mentoring they need in order to have successful careers in industry or academia. Through her work with the American Chemical Society and other Professional Organizations, she has seen the benefits of this timely mentoring. This part of Sophic Pursuits is dedicated to helping others find the mentoring they need to be successful.
