It's not just about STEM: A conversation about the DOE Scholars Program

Meet Cristina Cordero

Cristina Cordero

The DOE Scholars Program is designed to create a pipeline of highly qualified talent in disciplinary fields that support mission critical areas of the U.S. Department of Energy. While DOE is focused on science and research, not everyone in the Scholars Program has a background in STEM. Cristina Cordero, program coordinator for the Mickey Leland Energy Fellowship, is a former DOE Scholar with a background in communications and public administration. She is also a mentor for the Scholars program. In this episode of the ORISE Featurecast, Cordero and host Michael Holtz discuss her role, the trajectory of her career, and how she got to where she is today.
