Through her work in scientific research, Tara has insights into the unique challenges and opportunities for scientific talent. She has a passion to see smart, highly-skilled, and driven people excel in their jobs, her talks involve personal stories and vulnerability as well as research studies and practical tips and tools.
Here are the topics she speaks on:
Dr. Tara Huber is a coach, speaker, STEM professional & mentor, and the founder of Huber Coaching. She is a Harvard-trained Ph.D. who has over 20 years' experience in stem cell biology research and research administration. Having left research in 2013, most recently Tara worked at the Genome Institute of Singapore mentoring, leading, and working on behalf of early career researchers.
Passionate about STEM professionals and seeing people flourish in this field, she then founded Huber Coaching, which provides 1-to-1 coaching and workshops on mentorship and career management for STEM professionals. Tara brings emotional intelligence into the stereotypically rational and data-driven STEM profession and speaks on career development and transitions, leadership, and essential skills for success in this challenging & competitive field. She shares & deftly incorporates her own journey of career pivots and self-actualization to inspire her audiences.
Tara is an excellent example of a leader with a heart. She listens, offers plenty of room for fruitful discussion, and never fails to guide you to levels that are conducive for career development. She enriches people.
Tara has the unique talent of bringing out the inner strength and insights in people, to assist them in overcoming setbacks and grow. Tara is a natural coach and mentor, and will be an important asset to any organization. I recommend her strongly.
