Academic Level:
Graduate Students (PhD)

Workshop attendees will learn from and build community with 25 of their peers as well as a team of synthesis experts and mentors who share interests in investigating complex S-E problems, translating scientific contributions to actions and decisions, and increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion in science. Attendees will participate in interactive activities and skills-based trainings spanning the science of team science, to interdisciplinary proposal writing and shared research design, to science communication and delivering actionable outcomes. Attendees will also have the opportunity to join facilitated discussions and coaching sessions with mentors who are heavily engaged in promoting inclusion and diversity, and who themselves identify with a wide range of under-represented communities.

Altogether, the workshop is designed such that attendees:

- Enhance S-E synthesis and team science skills.

- Learn to communicate science to different audiences and inform relevant policies, decisions, and solutions.

- Expand and enrich science networks by incorporating and blending values and identities.

- Catalyze collaborative synthesis research projects as part of interdisciplinary teams.

- Engage with instructors, mentors, and peers in a welcoming environment conducive to diverse forms of thought, learning, expression, and exchange.
