a scientific lens
Academia and industry are two traditional routes taken by scientists with a Ph.D. What about policy? In our first episode, we dive into the world of science policy with Caitlin Warlick-Short, Director of Communications at the National Science Policy Network (NSPN), and the way in which young scientists can initiate local, national, and global change. We then spotlight NSPN's Science Diplomacy Exchange and Learning program (SciDEAL), which brings together early-career scientists and science diplomacy institutions that include non-profit organizations, consulates, and embassies. Participants will learn about science diplomacy and create resources for the public. Hear from Dr. Amrita Banerjee, PhD, the program coordinator, to learn more.
