Open Forum on the Role of Scientists in a Changing Political Climate

Open Forum on the Role of Scientists in a Changing Political Climate

With the recent change in administration, many of us have been caught off-guard and are unsure of what roles we will play as scientists, both personally and professionally, in the new political climate. The Open Forum on the Role of Scientists in a Changing Political Climate will provide an opportunity for us to explore those concerns and our own levels of involvement across the spectrum of activism, advocacy, and non-partisan objectivity. We have invited Ursula Rick (Center for Science & Technology Policy Research) and Jack Waldorf (CU Office of Government Relations), who have considerable experience working in science policy, to help guide the discussion.

When: Thursday, March 9th, 2017, 3:30-5:00 pm
