“My participation in the Program during the summer of 2017 not only influenced me to apply for BASF's Leadership Development Program (LDP), but also helped to prepare me for the interview process and, I believe, aided me in securing the position.” Samantha Carpenter, PhD Candidate, 2017 A2i participant, and recent selectee for the BASF Leadership Development Program
