Share this with your network

Are you an early career scientist excited about science policy, but unsure how to get started? If so, this workshop is for you! This session will feature early career scientists and engineers from Engineers & Scientists Acting Locally (ESAL) and the National Science Policy Network (NSPN), discussing how they have successfully developed skills, grown their professional network, and made an impact in science policy. Hear directly about how they leveraged resources from ESAL and NSPN to jump start their careers in science policy and engage with their local communities. Attendees will have the opportunity to apply the lessons they learn to develop their own science policy pathway and translate them into tangible next steps for impact.
