This Just Science Podcast episode is a discussion of strategies for creating a resilient workplace in the field of forensic science, which can be emotionally and physically taxing.
In this first episode of Just Science Podcast’s Resilient Leadership mini-season, the host, Ben Swanholm, interviews two New York City Office of Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) practitioners, Jamilla Dick-Quashie, Director of Health and Safety, and Meredith Rosenberg, the Department of Forensic Biology Deputy Director, to discuss their most successful strategies for creating a resilient workplace in the field of forensic science. The guests talk about their professional and educational backgrounds, some important skills or qualities that are necessary in order to be a resilient forensic scientist, and how they cultivate those skills and qualities in themselves in a work environment that requires high quality of work while being exposed to stressful or sensitive situations. The guests discuss mental health and resiliency programs that can help combat burnout and create a more adaptable workplace for employees. They also discuss the specific strategies used by OCME and provide suggestions for other forensic science organizations interested in workplace mental health resources.
