Scientists and engineers are in a unique position to influence science policy through their technical expertise. Strong communication skills are essential to bridging the gap between science and society. Join the AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellowships (STPF) program and the Journal of Science Policy and Governance (JSPG) for this web panel showcasing opportunities for early career researchers (ECRs) to get involved in science policy. The session will feature STPF fellows and JSPG board members who share lessons learned from their careers in science policy, including their entry point into science policy, fellowship experiences, and the variety of science policy careers beyond a fellowship. The web panel will also discuss skills that contributed to their success, and highlight JSPG as an avenue for publishing their studies, and for sharpening writing and editing skills in science policy.
