Free Webinar: Careers in Science Policy Panel Discussion

Interested in science policy? Curious about the intersection of science and government, and how scientific discoveries and insight help inform policy (and vice versa)? In this panel discussion, we will explore the diversity of careers you can pursue at the nexus of science and policy. Hear from astronomers who chose to follow their interests in science policy towards opportunities in associations, government, and industry. Learn about the different options and opportunities, required skills, and how to position yourself for success in this exciting and intellectually challenging profession. Moreover, discover the pathways towards this career, including science and technology policy fellowships with the AAS and AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science)!

Please join Alaina G. Levine, President, Quantum Success Solutions, for a conversation with our panelists.
