The Journal of Science Policy & Governance (JSPG) and the National Science Policy Network (NSPN) are pleased to co-host the 2021 International Policy Memo Competition focused on Intersectional Science Policy.
To prepare and incentivize interested authors to submit policy memos for the competition, JSPG will co-host five writing workshops featuring Special Topics Issue partners: the National Science Policy Network (NSPN), Society for Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS), 500 Women Scientists, and the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE).
The first three workshops will take place over two days. The first day will include a lecture on policy memo writing, followed by writing practice in groups. Science policy professionals will provide feedback on write-ups, and discuss their feedback extensively with participants on the second day. The last two workshops are 90-minute sessions.
All of these workshops will equip students, policy fellows, and early career researchers with the skills needed to write effective policy memos addressing justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion in all sectors of science, technology and innovation policy.
