How to get involved in policy from the bench

If you’re a scientist and interested in learning how to engage in the policymaking process then join the Bethesda, DC, and Philadelphia chapters of AWIS for a virtual panel discussion on February 18, 6-7 PM EST! The expert panelists will describe how they work with scientists to advance policy and answer your questions about their particular area of work in policy and advocacy. Once our group discussion winds down, we’ll have some time for networking.

Date/Time: February 18, 2021 6:00-7:30 PM EST; panel discussion (6:00-7:00 PM) and networking (7:00-7:30 PM).
