Policy Training

Faculty at Workshop

 ESA policy staff offer training workshops designed to help ecological scientists engage more effectively with policy makers. Featuring hands-on exercises, the workshops include overviews of the workings of Congress, tips on timing and developing a coherent message, and mock congressional meetings. The Society's Annual Meeting often includes workshops featuring speaker discussions on engaging policymakers as well as interactive exercises giving participants a taste for collaborations with stakeholders with multiple perspectives on an environmental issue.
