How can scientists participate in public policy?
Scientists are increasingly exploring policy engagement as a skillset or career path, and Sacramento continues to rise on the global policy landscape. These trends will be the focus of an upcoming professional mixer co-hosted by the CCST Science & Technology Policy Fellows Alumni Network and Capital Science Communicators (CapSciComm), a local professional association.
The event is free to attend, and anyone working at or interested in the intersection of science and policy is welcome. Local fellows and alumni from other renowned science policy programs, such as California Sea Grant Fellows, AAAS S&T Policy Fellows, NASEM Mirzayan Policy Fellows, and NOAA Knauss Marine Policy Fellows, are especially encouraged to reach out.
