Plan Your Scientific Career: Paths in Public Engagement

Today, more and more graduate students are exploring science policy and "nontraditional" career paths as an alternative to careers in academia. Early career scientists like you are paying more attention to the necessity of using science to inform policy, the importance of communicating science to the public, and the growing interest in public engagement with science.

To find career opportunities in these new spaces it helps to have different experiences and roles you can point to for future employers. Join us for a webinar with leaders who work in science policy and public engagement to find out about resources and opportunities they recommend graduate students take advantage of, and what they're looking for on applications for job openings related to science policy.
