Opowiem o mojej w艂asnej drodze zawodowej, r贸wnowa偶膮cej karier臋 naukowo-techniczn膮 z aktywnym uczestnictwem obywatelskim. Om贸wi臋 r贸wnie偶, w jaki spos贸b i dlaczego za艂o偶y艂am Engineers & Scientists Acting Local, organizacj臋 zajmuj膮c膮 si臋 zwi臋kszaniem liczby os贸b z do艣wiadczeniem w STEM, kt贸re s膮 zaanga偶owane w lokalne samorz膮dy i spo艂eczno艣ci.

CONTEMPORARY CHALLENGES Day 2

Scientists & Engineers as Civic Participants: Making a Difference in our Communities

KEYNOTE

 

As scientists and engineers we are often taught to view civic participation as separate from our professional responsibilities. But now more than ever before, our communities and governments need people who understand science and technology to help inform decisions about complex challenges. I will talk about my own professional journey, balancing a career in science and technology with active civic participation. I will also discuss how and why I founded Engineers & Scientists Acting Locally, an organization dedicated to increasing the number of people with backgrounds in STEM who are engaged with their local governments and communities.
