Learn how rapid advances in science and technology are making scientists increasingly influential in the development of public policy in Washington.
The Science/Technology Seminar is the only place in Washington where you can experience the excitement of a career in science policy, discover how to have one, and begin networking with important women who’ll help you create one – all in 5 days.
You’ll hear from scientists who advise the President, Members of Congress, the State Department and other federal agencies, lead institutes at the National Institutes of Health, develop and administer federal regulations, and lobby for corporations and advocacy groups. You’ll also hear from recently-graduated scientists who’ve won fellowships to work in science policy, and they’ll tell you how you can, too.
